Bimat is used to lower eye pressure in persons who have glaucoma or high eye pressure. If the pressure in your eye is too high, it might harm your vision and even cause blindness. It works by facilitating the flow of fluid from the interior of the eye into the bloodstream. Bimat is safe for both adults and children, and it can be used alone or in conjunction with other eye medicine to help lower pressure. To receive the best benefit from this medicine, follow your doctor’s recommendations and take it on a regular basis. If you stop using it, the pressure in your eye may rise, causing harm to your vision. If the seal on a bottle is broken before you use it for the first time, don’t use it. If you wear contact lenses, make sure you take them out and wait at least 15 minutes before putting them back in.
