Details

Alphagan Eye Drops contain generic Brimonidine as an active ingredient which is used to reduce raised pressure in the eye (ocular hypertension) and to manage glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition in which the pressure of fluid in the eye may be elevated which arises due to a buildup of the fluid which flows through the eye.

It is used to treat conditions where there is elevated pressure in the eye, like glaucoma.
