Alphagan Eye Drops (brimonidine) are used to reduce intraocular eye pressure (IOP) in individuals who have ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. It is an an alpha agonist, and both reduces production of the fluid that fills the eye as well as increases its drainage.

This product is often used on its own, but it can be used with other eye medications provided at least 5 minutes pass between administration. One can also buy Alphagan Eye Drops in combination with other medications, such as Combigan, which contains both brimonidine and timolol, a beta-blocker.

Alphagan Eye Drops are suitable for use in children age 12 and up. They are sometimes used in much younger children, but parents are advised not to buy Alphagan Eye Drops for younger patients without doctor approval and a commitment to involvement, as these individuals will likely require frequent doctor visits to monitor for developing side effects.

What to Expect from Alphagan Eye Drops

Alphagan Eye Drops reduce the amount of liquid---called aqueous humour---that filters into the eye while improving drainage, through the trabecular meshwork, thus reducing overall eye pressure.

Eye pressure can rise higher than normal for a number of reasons, including other conditions---such as diabetes---injury, age, and genetics. Note that it is very rare for high IOP to produce side effects until vision loss is experienced. Individuals at highest risk include:

  • Those with a family history of high IOP or glaucoma
  • Those with diabetes, especially untreated/uncontrolled
  • Those with black or Latino lineage
  • Those with severe nearsightedness
  • Those over age 40

High IOP can lead to glaucoma, and glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. While there is no cure for either condition, patients buy Alphagan Eye Drops to help manage it, slowing or preventing progression. Vision exams are critical for catching this condition before it develops into glaucoma.

Alphagan Eye Drops are easy to use:

  • Apply one eye drop to each eye.
  • Repeat three times per day, every 8 hours.
  • Continue treatment for as long as a doctor recommends.

Treatment is often long term, even indefinite.

Soft contacts should be removed prior to application and kept out for at least 15 minutes after application.

Each vial of Alphagan Eye Drops includes a dropper. The dropper should not touch any surface, hands, or eyes to prevent contamination to the eyes or the remaining fluid in the vial.

Once opened, any fluid remaining after four weeks should be discarded as it is assumed to be contaminated. However, many patients don't care to buy Alphagan Eye Drops with this sort of frequency and continue to use it.

Eyes may burn or sting a little when the medication is first applied. As long as it's not severe or persistant this isn't a concern. In many cases this will stop happening after the first few doses.

Precautions Before Use

Even though Alphagan Eye Drops are administered to the eye, they can cause systemic side effects. Certain patients are a greater risk of these adverse reactions, including those who have:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Decreased blood supply to the heart or brain
  • Low blood pressure
  • Narrowing of blood vessels in hands, legs, or feet
  • Kidney or liver impairment
  • Depression or other mental disorder

Patients with the above may be able to buy Alphagan Eye Drops, but will require extra monitoring and be alert for symptoms that the conditions are worsening.

Those who are taking monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or tricyclic antidepressants should not take Alphagan Eye Drops.

The effects of Alphagan Eye Drops on unborn or nursing babies are unclear. Mothers should discuss potential risks with a doctor before use.
