The following quote comes directly from the Latisse website:

"If you are using prescription products for lowering eye pressure or have a history of eye pressure problems, only use LATISSE(r) under close doctor supervision. May cause eyelid skin darkening which may be reversible, and there is potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent. There is a potential for hair growth to
occur in areas where LATISSE(r) solution comes in repeated contact with skin surfaces. If you develop or experience any eye problems or have eye surgery, consult your doctor immediately about continued use ofLATISSE(r). The most common side effects after using LATISSE(r) solution are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness."
