Contraindications: LATISSE? is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to bimatoprost or any other ingredient in this product.

Warnings and Precautions: Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (LUMIGAN®) lowers intraocular pressure (IOP) when instilled directly to the eye in patients with elevated IOP. In clinical trials, in patients with or without elevated IOP (intra ocular pressure), LATISSE? lowered IOP, however, the magnitude of the reduction was not cause for clinical concern. In ocular hypertension studies with LUMIGAN®, it has been shown that exposure of the eye to more than one dose of bimatoprost daily may decrease the intraocular pressure lowering effect. In patients using LUMIGAN® or other prostaglandin analogs for the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure, the concomitant use of LATISSE? may interfere with the desired reduction in IOP. Patients using prostaglandin analogs including LUMIGAN® for IOP reduction should only use LATISSE? after consulting with their physician and should be monitored for changes to their intraocular pressure.

Increased iris pigmentation has occurred when the same formulation of bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (LUMIGAN®) was instilled directly onto the eye. Although iridal pigmentation was not reported in clinical studies with LATISSE?, patients should be advised about the potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent.

Bimatoprost has been reported to cause pigment changes (darkening) to periorbital pigmented tissues and eyelashes. The pigmentation is expected to incease as long as bimatoprost is administered, but has been reported to be reversible upon discontinuation of bimatoprost in most patients.

Adverse Reactions: The most frequently reported adverse events were eye pruritus, conjunctival hyperemia, skin hyperpigmentation, ocular irritation, dry eye symptoms, and erythema of the eyelid. These events occurred in less than 4% of patients.
