What Vizibim is and what it is used for

Vizibim is an anti-glaucoma drug. It belongs to a group of medicines called prostamides.

Vizibim eye drops are used to reduce high intraocular pressure. This medicine can be used alone or in combination with other drops called beta-blockers, which also reduce blood pressure.

Your eyes contain a clear, water-like fluid that fills the inside of the eye. This fluid constantly drains out and is replaced by a new one. If the fluid cannot be excreted quickly enough, the pressure inside the eye increases. This medicine works by increasing the amount of fluid released. This reduces the pressure inside the eye. If high intraocular pressure is not reduced, it could lead to a condition called glaucoma and eventually damage your vision.

Visible eye drops, a solution is a sterile solution that does not contain a preservative.

3. How to use Visibim

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

This medicine should only be given to the eyes. The recommended dose is one drop of Visibim in the evening, once a day in each eye that needs treatment.

If you are using Visibim with another eye medicine, wait at least five minutes between using Visibim and the other eye medicine.

Do not use more than once a day, as the effectiveness of the treatment may be reduced.

Do not allow the tip of the dispenser to touch the eye or the area around the eye. This may cause injury to your eyes. The eye drop solution can become infected with bacteria, which can cause eye inflammation, leading to serious eye injury, even with vision loss.
