Alphagan® (brimonidine tartrate) is a medication often prescribed for lowering eye pressure in people with high eye pressure (ocular hypertension) or open-angle glaucoma. It works to reduce pressure within the eye by decreasing the amount of fluid produced by the eye and by increasing the rate of drainage. Although most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include eye redness, burning, and stinging. This medicine comes as an eye drop and is typically applied to the affected eye(s) three times daily.
