Fast acting, long lasting:
Lifts eyelids in as little as 5 minutes after application (with full effects seen at 2 hours), and lasts up to 8 hours.
What are low-lying eyelids?
If you’ve noticed that your eyes look tired—more tired than you feel—you may have acquired blepharoptosis (low-lying lids), also called ptosis. With this condition, the upper eyelids droop, most commonly because of progressive weakening of the eyelid muscles over time. Acquired ptosis may make you look sleepy or even obstruct your vision as it progresses.
How do I use Upneeq?
Apply Upneeq to your affected eye(s) in two easy steps:
Step 1: Cut open the foil wrapper and remove the single-use vial. Close each eye for 60 seconds post-application for the best results. Do not let the tip of the vial touch your eye or any other surface. Vials should not be re-used after opening and should be thrown away after applying drop(s)
Step 2: Instill one drop of Upneeq in each affected eye as directed, once a day. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before instilling Upneeq eye drops. You may put them back in 15 minutes after administering Upneeq.
If more than one medication or eye drop is being used in the eye, they should be administered at least 15 minutes apart.
When will I start seeing results?
Patients see maximum results within 2 hours, but results may be seen as soon as 5–15 minutes.
Is Upneeq safe and effective to use?
Yes, Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eye drop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids). Upneeq was proven to be safe and effective when used as directed in clinical trials.
What are the potential side effects of Upneeq?
Common side effects (seen in 1–5% of patients) included eye inflammation, eye redness, dry eye, blurred vision, instillation site pain, eye irritation, and headache. For full safety information, see Important Safety Information here.
