Alphagan Eye Drops may cause some side effects such as blurred vision, dry eyes and burning sensation in the eyes. You should wash your hands properly before administering brimonidine eye drops. Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper close to the eye with the tip facing downwards. Squeeze the dropper so that a drop of medicine falls in the pocket. Close your eyes for 2 to 3 minutes and repeat the same for the next dose.
