Revitalash and having Glaucoma?

Postby ModSquad » Thu Jun 05, 2008 10:22 am

I'm looking to start the Revitalash Conditioner -- I have glaucoma, was diagnosed several years ago, on daily treatments every since, left and right eye I have had some serious eyelash growth to the point of having to search for the correct sunglasses so eyelashes will not hit the inside of lenses due to one of the side-effects of my treatments -- my desire is to thicken them up, will the Revitalash help with that???

I so appreciate any, and all feed back that can be given...

Lezza - I think that the old formula that had the bimatoprost in it would not be a good thing to use w/ a glacoma medicine. Too much of the same thing - KWIM?

The newer, reformulated one might be OK. Perhaps that's a good question to throw at the mfg?

I agree with foxeskier, adding Revitalash might be too much of a good thing.

Maybe you should talk to your doctor first. If you are already on glaucoma meds, it might be too much for your eyes. I would be afraid it would mess with the internal pressure, which is a very serious matter with glaucoma, as you know

I, too, am on meds for glaucoma and my eyelashes are also a lot longer than they used to be, but alas, also not any thicker.

I just glop on lots of mascara. :D

Thank you both...

I too am afraid to just start using it along with my daily treatments -- I will ask my eye specialist b/f purchasing it -- it would bite to pay what it cost to find out he says NOT to use it...

I see him ( tee hee, that is a funny, huh ) every six months... I do really see him, I see well with contacts -- had only lost VERY little side vision b/f they diagnosed me...

This is what kept me from being able to enlist in the US Army, ugh like I needed to see to use a weapon, huh -- so just kidding, but that is why I was disqualified... :(

Again thank you all,
Lisa
