Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE The Effect of Lumify™ on Ocular Redness, Intraocular Pressure, and Eyelid Position in Glaucoma Patients
Official Title  ICMJE The Effect of Lumify™ (Brimonidine Tartrate Ophthalmic Solution 0.025%) on Ocular Redness, Intraocular Pressure, and Eyelid Position in Glaucoma Patients Using Brimonidine 0.2%, 0.15%, or 0.1%
Brief Summary Glaucoma represents a group of conditions that cause damage to the optic nerve and can lead to irreversible vision loss. Current treatments are aimed at lowering intraocular pressure while minimizing medication side effects. Lumify™ (Brimonidine Tartrate Ophthalmic Solution 0.025%) is an FDA-approved medication for alleviating eye redness, a common side effect of glaucoma medications. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Lumify™ on eye redness, intraocular pressure, and eyelid position in patients with glaucoma who are already using the Brimonidine 0.1%, 0.15% or 0.2% eye drops.
