In brief: Eye redness

Alphagan (brimonidine) has limited systemic absorption.
The only prominent side effect is stinging on application of the drop and redness of the eyes which occurs in about 15-20% of users. It is a useful anti-glaucoma drop usually prescribed in association with other drops for the same purpose.
