Brimonidine is a medication primarily used to treat certain eye conditions such as glaucoma and hypertension of the eye. It belongs to a drug class known as alpha-adrenergic agonists.

Brimonidine comes in prescription ophthalmic solution (eye drops) and topical gel.

The ophthalmic solution (eye drops) is available as a prescription-only medication (Alphagan, Alphagan P) and as over-the-counter eye drops (Lumify).

Alphagan and Alphagan P are used to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. This reduction in IOP helps prevent damage to the optic nerve, which is crucial in managing the risk of vision loss associated with these conditions.

Lumify, the over-the-counter version of brimonidine eye drops, is used for temporary relief of redness in the eyes caused by minor eye irritations. Lumify works by selectively constricting blood vessels in the eye, thereby reducing the redness and making the eyes appear whiter and brighter. Lumify is not intended for the treatment of glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Brimonidine is available in a topical gel form under the brand name Mirvaso. Mirvaso is specifically formulated for the treatment of persistent facial redness (erythema) associated with rosacea in adults.

Using Brimonidine ophthalmic (Alphagan)

When used as an eye drop for adults, brimonidine is typically instilled into the affected eye(s) 3 times a day (usually 1 drop). The exact dosage may vary depending on the individual’s condition and response to treatment. The eye drops should be used at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day, with a minimum interval of 8 hours between each dose.

Before using brimonidine eye drops, make sure to wash your hands thoroughly. Avoid touching the tip of the dropper to any surface, including your eyes or hands, to prevent contamination.

While instilling the eye drops, tilt your head back and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Place the prescribed number of drops into the pocket without touching the dropper to your eye. Close your eyes for 2 to 3 minutes and tip your head down as though looking at the floor. Try not to blink or squeeze your eyelids. If you are using other eye drops, wait at least 5 minutes before applying them.

Make sure you follow your healthcare provider’s instructions carefully when using brimonidine eye drops. Do not use more or less than the prescribed dose, and do not stop using them without consulting your doctor. If you experience any side effects or have concerns about your treatment, talk to your healthcare provider.
