The way Careprost works is by binding receptors in the eye in the form of Prostamide, which is a chemical that has various effects and roles in different tissues of the body, one of which includes ocular pressure reduction. Prostamide increases the flow of aqueous humour through the trabecular network, which is a spongy tissue that provides a drainage route for the aqueous humour itself by reducing tonographic resistance ( known as pressure-sensitive resistance) to facilitate the outflow of humour and proper fluid drainage.
Aqueous humour is the build-up of pressure inside the eye that can usually be witnessed in case of glaucoma patients, and the way it brings troubles is by causing a blockage in the draining system of the eye fluid. A healthy balance of fluid flowing in and out of the eye is what relieves the pressure exerted on the eye, thus reducing the risk of optic nerve damage that is bound to happen to the majority of untreated glaucoma patients.
How to Use:
- Make sure that your face is clean, and your makeup and contact lenses have been removed.
- Apply Careprost Eye Drops to the affected eye once per day in the evening or as directed by your doctor and physician.
- To apply the eye drops, tilt the head back slightly and pull down on the lower eyelid to create a small pocket.
- Hold the dropper above the eye, squeeze out a drop, and close the eye.
- Gently press a finger to the inside corner of the eye for about 1 minute to keep the liquid from draining into the tear duct.
- If you are using an eyeliner brush as an applicator, ensure that it is clean before each and every use.
