What is the use of Careprost Eye Drops
The Careprost eye drops ( Generic Latisse ), 0.03% eye, drops works by reducing the pressure within the eyes called the intraocular pressure for the treatment of Glaucoma disease. This particular eye syndrome increases the IOP due to the build-up of the fluid known as aqueous humour. It is also used for treating the condition of Hypotrichosis in which the growth of eyes lashes is either abnormal or insufficient to impart its adequate thickness. When you use this ophthalmic solution, it enables you to achieve the thicker and also darker eyelashes.

Careprost Working Mechanism?
Bimatoprost works by increasing the length, density, thickness of your eyelashes.
