    I have been on Lumigan for 5 months now. Previously was on Xalatan for 5 yrs. My pressure is great at 16. The main side effect that bothers me is rapid eye movement, mainly after I install the drops. My dr told me it is probably a preservative. I install the drops 1 hr before bed. Haven't seen anyone else complain about the rapid eye movement but I would rather be on Xalatan.

    I have been using Lumigan for glaucoma for 21 months. It has been effective at reducing my IOP, although I've had to add a second type of drop to lower it further. For side effects I had red, irritated eyes for the first couple weeks, but it has subsided. I've also had very pronounced eyelash growth from about the 3rd month onward.

    I was previously on Xalatan for 5 yrs now I have a different dr & he gave me Lumigan. I prefer Xalatan however the lumigan lowered my pressure even better than xalatan. I do have a dark spot under one eye & worried about my low sugar with lumigan. I believe cost wise they are about the same.

    After the first use, my eyes were red and blood shot. Looked like I had been on a bender. Did not help any with pressure

    I use both Lumigan and Azopt and my pressure has come down from 40 to 15. Lumigan once a day at bedtime and Azopt twice a day. There was slight burning and blurring until I got used to it. There are no problems now and I just hope it continues to work.
