I loved my long eye-lashes from latisse, but stopped using it because my eye-lids got very red. Has anyone else had this experience?

Yes, sometimes it happens but these effects are just temporary. As you said that you loved your lashes after Latisse then for knowing the proper applications and precautions consult a dermatologist.

My eyes got very itchy and red after 2 uses. I used it for about about 5 nights straight, and then stopped for a night or two and got immediate relief. I have only used inconsistently since. However, my lashes definately responded and I notice a difference within that first week. One strange side effect was vision slightly improved and I have not been able to see clearly since the early 2000's. I wear contacts daily otherwise I wouldn't be able to see well enough to drive! I woke up one morning after a couple of days and could see much clearer than i had in years. However, effect was not lasting was back to normal within an hour or so.

I've noticed this for sure.
Granted, I have been using the "generic" equivalent purchased from India called Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution 0.03% by Careprost, but Bimatoprost is the ingredient that enhances the lashes. I was careful to apply according to the directions as I was also wary the material would damage my eyes since it is designed for an eye affliction rather than a cosmetic improvement. Within a few days, I noticed my eyelids becoming red and itchy where the solution touched them. Smart woman that I am, I continued using the solution and my skin adapted to it somewhat and I was able to grow longer lashes and the redness subsided. Using the generic solution, my eyelashes thickened a small amount and grew longer by an incredible amount. I was rather hoping for the opposite effect but I wasn't going to argue. Falling onto economic hardships for a period of time I was forced to stop purchasing the solution. The longer lashes gradually fell out over a period of a couple months and returned to normal. I was worried the irritation and redness from the solution on my eyelids would not go away, but it did fairly quickly after I stopped applying the solution. I have blue eyes and my eye color did not change as a result of using this product. I'm going to try it again amidst reviews that with proper care, the eyelashes will stay intact and you only have to apply the solution every few weeks for maintenance rather than every night. We'll see what happens.

Yes, Latisse also made my eyelids very red. I discontinued using it because of this. It was great to have the lashes, but I looked like I'd been crying all the time. I used it for 6 months and did not notice eyelashes falling out.

I have been using Latisse for alittle over a month and just the past few days noticed my eyelids are red and itchy. Have you noticed eyelashes falling out as people have been posting?
