What is Upneeq?

There is a new way to open and brighten and enhance your eyes. As we get older, our eyes get a little heavier, more hooded and eventually can be quite droopy. This new eyedrop can open your eyes up, for a more youthful appearance.

UPNEEQ® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution, 0.1%) is a prescription eyedrop used to treat low-lying lids (acquired blepharoptosis) in adults. UPNEEQ® can enhance your eyes for a more brighter and lighter eye. Like Latisse, Upneeq is only available as a presciption from your doctor.
