optipress eye drop is a medicine used to treat elevated intraocular pressure (high pressure inside the eye) in people with ocular hypertension and certain types of glaucoma. It lowers the pressure in the eye by decreasing the production of fluid and reduces the risk of vision loss.
Always wash your hands before using Optipres Eye Drop. Use only the number of drops that your doctor has prescribed and wait for about five minutes between each drop. If you wear soft contact lenses, remove them before using the drops and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back in. If you are also using another eye medicine, wait for at least 10 minutes before using it. Read the leaflet that comes with the medicine for a full guide on how to use the drops and get the most benefit. Do not touch the tip of the dropper or bottle. This may lead to infection. You should use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit and it is best done at the same time(s) each day. If you want to stop using it, consult your doctor first. CLICK MORE: optipress

BENEFITS OF OPTIPRES EYE DROP
Optipres Eye Drop belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. It reduces pressure in the eyes (ocular hypertension) that can lead to an illness called glaucoma. It may be used alone or with other eye drops. Do not use it too often as that can make it less effective. You should only use it in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor. Most people with glaucoma do not feel sick. If you stop taking it, the pressure in your eye will not be controlled. This could lead to a loss of sight.

Optipres Eye Drop helps reduce pressure in your eyes. It increases the flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream thereby lowering the increased eye pressure. If the pressure in your eye is too high, it can damage your sight. You should use it regularly as prescribed by your doctor.
