LUMIFY® relieves redness of the eye due to minor eye irritations such as environmental allergies, dryness, and fatigue for adults.1

LUMIFY® can be used with contacts but be sure to take them out before putting LUMIFY® in your eyes. Wait 15 minutes before re-inserting contact lenses after use.

Yes, but you’ll want to wait at least 5 minutes between products.

No. LUMIFY® is available over the counter, without a prescription. Find it in the eye care aisle at most major retailers.

  • LUMIFY® is the first and only over the counter eye drop to contain the active ingredient brimonidine tartrate (0.025%).
  • LUMIFY® works differently than other redness relievers on the market by selectively targeting redness and in clinical trials was safe and effective when used as directed.1

Occasional eye redness, sometimes referred to as “blood shot”, is a common condition that can be caused by minor eye irritation. Common causes include environmental allergens, lack of sleep, or dry conditions*.

Bausch + Lomb is a leading global eye health organization that is solely focused on protecting and restoring people’s eyesight. Its core businesses include over-the-counter supplements, eye care products, ophthalmic pharmaceuticals, contact lenses, lens care products, ophthalmic surgical devices and instruments.

Brimonidine tartrate is the active ingredient in LUMIFY®. Low dose brimonidine selectively constricts the veins in the eye as opposed to arteries thereby providing effective redness relief with low incidence of side effects associated with other redness relievers when used as directed.

In clinical trials, LUMIFY® provided significant redness reduction for up to 6-8 hours.1

How long the bottle lasts will depend on how frequently you use it. Once eye drops have been opened, they risk being contaminated with bacteria. Therefore, it is recommended that you throw away any opened bottles of eye drops after 121 days, even if the expiration date is later. You also should never share eye drops – eye infections can be spread this way.

Instill one drop in the affected eye(s) every 6-8 hours. Don’t use more than 4 times a day. Similar to other redness relievers, you should stop use and ask a doctor if your experience eye pain, changes in vision, continued redness or irritation of the eye or conditions worsens or persists for more than 72 hours (3 days).

LUMIFY® is for anyone 18 years of age and over experiencing eye redness due to minor irritations. If pregnant or breast-feeding, ask a healthcare professional before use.

For adults 18 years of age and over:
• Instill 1 drop in the affected eye(s) every 6-8 hours
• Do not use more than 4 times daily
• Remove contact lenses before use
• Wait at least 15 minutes before re-inserting contact lenses after use
• If using other ophthalmic products while using this product, wait at least 5 minutes between each product
• To avoid contamination, do not touch tip of container to any surface
• Replace the bottle cap after each use
