What is Latanoprost for:

This medication is prostaglandin analog, prescribed for open angle glaucoma and increased eye pressure, which can lead to a gradual loss of vision.

How does Latanoprost work:

It binds to a specific receptor for prostaglandin, increases the flow of aqueous humor out of the eye, thereby reducing the pressure within the eye and reducing the risk of nerve damage and blindness.

How should Latanoprost be used:

For the eye only. Wash your hands before and after use. Take out contact lenses before using this drug. Lenses may be put back in 15 minutes after this drug is given. Do not put contacts back in if your eyes are irritated or infected. Do not touch the container tip to the eye, lid, or other skin. Tilt your head back and drop drug into the eye. After use, keep your eyes closed. Put pressure on the inside corner of the eye. Do this for 1 to 2 minutes. This keeps the drug in your eye. Space each eye drug by 5 minutes. A delivery aid (Xal-Ease?) may help.

Common side effects of Latanoprost :

Eye irritation. Bright lights may bother you. Wear sunglasses. Blurred eyesight. Use care when driving or doing other tasks that call for clear eyesight. Eye color may change with use. This drug may raise the brown pigment. Dark eyelashes and skin around the eye may also happen. These changes may be long-lasting.

What do I do if I miss a dose

What precautions should I take when taking Latanoprost :

Caution needed for patients with history of aphakia (absence of lens of the eye) or pseudophakia with torn posterior lens cap or anterior chamber lenses, risk factors for cystoid macular oedema, brittle or severe asthma, history of intraocular inflammation, neovascular, angle-closure or congenital glaucoma, during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
