Patients with Sensitive Eyes BEWARE!

My lashes are short and blonde, so I was hoping for longer, darker lashes. I asked my doctor about Latisse and he gave me the prescription, cautioning me that about 1% of users will be allergic to it.
After about a week of use, I noticed that my eyes were noticeably reddened and irritated. Over the next 3 weeks, I had to see my optometrist 3 times for acute allergic reaction to Latisse. Like a dummy, I kept trying to use it despite the obvious problem it was causing! After a month, I finally gave up and quit using Latisse and within 3 days my horribly bloodshot eyes began to return to normal.
Despite the problems I had with Latisse, I did see significant lash growth. I wish I could have kept using it!
Moral of the story- if you have sensitive eyes, think twice before you try it!

We are damned if we do and damned if we don't. Most of us who are fair skinned have pale, sparse lashes. We are also more likely to be sensitive to everything such as mascara, lash tints, and apparently Latisse. We can't win. ☹
