Benefits of Ganfort Eye Drops
In Treatment of Glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve which is essential for proper vision. This damage is often caused by abnormally high pressure in the eye. Bimat-T Eye Drops is used to reduce swelling and pressure inside the eye. This helps prevent complications of glaucoma such as blindness and improves vision. This medicine may be used alone or with other eye drops. Glaucoma cannot be prevented. Frequent monitoring and regular checkups can help detect the disease in its early stages.
In Treatment of Ocular Hypertension. Ocular hypertension is a condition where the pressure inside the eye is higher than normal eye pressure due to fluid build-up. Bimat-T Eye Drops increase the flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream thereby lowering the increased eye pressure. This prevents further damage or complications such as a change in vision or even loss of vision. You should only use Bimat-T Eye Drops in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor.
