Ophthalmic brimonidine is prescribed to reduce intraocular pressure in individuals with glaucoma and ocular hypertension.

Belonging to the class of drugs known as alpha adrenergic agonists, brimonidine operates by diminishing the quantity of fluid in the eyes.

Uses and Dosage

Ophthalmic brimonidine is supplied as a liquid solution for instillation into the eyes. Typically, it is applied to the affected eye(s) three times a day.

Administer brimonidine eye drops at approximately the same times each day, aiming for a spacing of about 8 hours between each of the three daily doses. Utilize brimonidine eye drops precisely as directed, avoiding deviations in dosage—neither exceeding nor reducing the amount, and refrain from using them more frequently than prescribed by your doctor.

While brimonidine eye drops may manage your condition, it does not provide a cure. Continue using brimonidine eye drops even if you are feeling well. Do not discontinue the use of brimonidine eye drops without consulting your doctor.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
