An Innovative Once-A-Day Eyelash Enhancer

Safe and effective

Latisse® has been shown to increase eyelash length, thickness, and darkness through its active ingredient, bimatoprost. By lengthening the lash growth phase, eyelashes grow longer and thicker.

Gradual, consistent, cumulative results

Most patients report a noticeable change in eyelash appearance within 1-2 months, with peak results after 4.

Proven safe for over 13 years

Over a course of 32 clinical trials spanning 13 years and involving over 5,700 patients less than 4% of participants noted mild side effects.

Results that speak for themselves

With proven results and well-documented clinical trials, the best way to evaluate Latisse® eyelash enhancement is to try it for yourself.

How does Latisse® work?

The Science is Simple

Latisse lengthens the growth phase and stimulates pigment (melanin) formation in the hair follicles to darken them.

How is Latisse® Applied?

Latisse® is applied once-daily to the base of the upper eyelid margin with a single-use-per-eye disposable applicator brush.

Vision Therapy Reviews

  • Vision Therapy has helped me become an all-around solid reader. When reading books, I now fully understand what is happening and I don’t have to read one part in a book over and over to understand. I can also read fast while still understanding. My eyes are also being much more efficient, which is making me less tired when I read.

    Max, Age 12

  • Before Vision Therapy, I was seeing double vision and I couldn’t see the board. Now I can see the board and I can only see double vision when I cross my eyes!

    Alida, Age 8

  • I have improved in spelling because I get better grades. Before I was getting C’s and B’s in spelling, and now I’m getting A’s. I have improved in Math because before I didn’t know my times tables that good. I didn’t know 7 x 9, and now I know it’s 63, and I get better grades. Now I can draw better and more detailed pictures. I don’t have very much headaches and stomach aches any more, and my eyes don’t hurt when I read, and they don’t get tired anymore, so I read a lot more.

    Micheal, Age 11

  • When Michael first visited the optometrist he was experiencing frequent headaches and tummy aches, as well as sore, tired eyes. His grades were slipping at school and he disliked reading. He was beginning to consider himself as “dumb”. The combination of eye glasses and vision therapy has made a world of difference to Michael...

  • Jason was in grade 2 when he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. He had coordination issues and had a hard time with motor skills. We had him thoroughly tested by various specialists. His ears and eyes checked out fine. He was placed on drugs at 8 years old...

    Jason, Age 15 (from his mother) - Read More

  • Vision Therapy has made a huge difference to what I see. Even though I’m halfway through, the changes have been nothing but extraordinary. My peripheral vision and depth-perception has improved, making driving and parking, especially in tight spaces, a whole lot easier. Before, I would panic and give up. Now I have much more awareness and I no longer have to worry about hitting things. Considering I had my eyes cosmetically operated on three times, it’s an overall amazing change.

Latisse® FAQ

What is Latisse®?

Latisse® is the first and only prescription eyelash growth product indicated in Canada to grow natural eyelashes longer, thicker and darker*.

How long does it take before you start seeing results with Latisse®?

Latisse® users typically start to see longer lashes in about eight weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks. Latisse® is the first and only prescription eyelash growth product indicated in Canada to grow natural eyelashes longer, darker and thicker.

How long do results with Latisse® last?

Results with Latisse® can be seen in as little as eight weeks, with full growth at 16 weeks.  To maintain results, continued use of Latisse® is needed. Once treatment is discontinued, over a period of several weeks to months (average eyelash hair cycle), eyelash prominence will return to pre-treatment levels.

What will happen if you stop using Latisse®?

Once treatment is discontinued, over a period of several weeks to months (average eyelash hair cycle), eyelash prominence will return to pre-treatment levels. Therefore to maintain results, continued treatment with Latisse® is necessary.

I’ve heard that Latisse® can cause iris pigmentation. Is this true?

Although not reported in clinical studies, Latisse® may cause increased brown iris pigmentation, which could be permanent. Therefore consumers/patients should be cautioned against the potential for iris pigmentation when using Latisse®. In LUMIGAN® studies where the same active ingredient is instilled/dropped directly into the eye, iris pigmentation change was a reported effect in 1.5 % of patients receiving once-daily dosing.  In addition, when used with the approved single-use-per-eye disposable applicator brush, Latisse® delivers approximately five per cent of the volume when applied to the upper eyelid margin at the base of the eyelashes, versus when the same formulation of bimatoprost is applied directly into the eye to treat glaucoma.

I’ve heard the hyperpigmentation could almost produce an eyeliner effect?

In some cases, patients using Latisse® may experience darkening along the upper eyelid where the product is applied, which could give the appearance of eyeliner. This pigmentation may be reversible upon discontinuation of the product.

If you have had laser surgery, contact lenses or sensitive eyes, can you still use Latisse®?

Latisse® contains BAK (benzalkonium chloride), which may be absorbed by soft contact lenses. Contact lenses should be removed prior to use of Latisse® and may be reinserted 15 minutes following its application. For all other eye sensitivities and ailments, individuals should speak with an aesthetic specialty doctor to determine if Latisse® is right for them.

Do other eyelash enhancement products not grow your lashes too? What are the differences?

Latisse® is the first and only prescription eyelash growth product indicated in Canada to grow natural eyelashes longer, thicker and darker. Therefore, it cannot be compared to other products. Unlike Latisse®, the safety and efficacy of alternative over-the-counter eyelash enhancement products has not been demonstrated in rigorous clinical studies.

Rebecca, one of our Optometric Assistants, has been using Latisse® and is loving the results.

We are very excited to now be offering this take-home eyelash treatment to our patients at Lynn Valley Optometry in North Vancouver. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions, or give us a call at 604 987 9191.
