and wait 10 minutes
to put your contacts back in after use of LUMIFY.
Can I use it with other eye drops?

Do I need a prescription?
No. LUMIFY is available over the counter, without a prescription.

aisle at most major retailers.
How does LUMIFY work differently?
- LUMIFY significantly reduces redness to help your eyes look whiter and brighter.
Recently approved by the FDA, LUMIFY is the first over the counter eye drop to contain
the active ingredient brimonidine tartrate (0.025%).
- LUMIFY works differently than other redness relievers by selectively targeting redness,
maintaining the flow of blood and oxygen to the eye, and alleviating some of the
potential side effects common to redness relievers - rebound redness and loss of
effectiveness over time.
What makes my eyes red?
Occasional eye redness is a common condition that can be caused by inflammation of
almost any part of the eye. Common causes include environmental allergens, too much
screen time, being over tired, or having dry eyes.
