Latoprost is an eye drop formulation for treating increased intraocular pressure in ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma patients. It contains Latanoprost, a United States Food and Drug Administration-approved eye drop formulation that reduces intraocular pressure by increasing the outflow of aqueous humour by improving the uveoscleral outflow. Latanoprost is a prostaglandin most used as the first line of treatment in glaucoma due to its effectiveness in reducing intraocular pressure, convenient once-daily dosing, and acceptable safety profile.
The recommended dosage is one drop in the affected eye once daily in the evening. Apply pressure on the corner of the eye to instil the drop. Wait 5 to 10 minutes before outing the next eye care preparation in the same eye to avoid dilution. If a dose is missed, treatment should continue with the next dose as normal. The dosage of this ophthalmic solution should not exceed once daily dosage.
Latoprost may be used with other antiglaucoma agents to reduce intraocular pressure. If using more than one topical ophthalmic solution, be sure to keep a gap of five minutes between two drops. Contact lenses require removal before administering the medicine, and the patient should reinsert the lenses within fifteen minutes of the topical application if they drop. Once daily, latoprost has been shown to achieve a uniform round-the-clock reduction of intraocular pressure either alone or combined with a twice-daily dose of timolol.
Before using Latoprost, let your doctor know if you are allergic to it or have any other allergies. If you develop an eye infection or injury or have eye surgery, Check with your ophthalmologist if you can continue using the current bottle of latoprost. After you use this medicine, your vision may become temporarily blurred or unstable.
Avoid driving or using machinery or any activity that requires clear vision until you can do it safely. During pregnancy, this ophthalmic solution should only be used when required. Discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare provider.
Itching, burning, stinging, blurred vision, redness of the eye, feeling as if something is in the eye, changes in the eyelash number, dry eye, lid crusting, or increased sensitivity to light may occur. If any of these side effects last or worsen, inform your doctor immediately. The ophthalmic solution may slowly cause brown discolouration of the coloured portion of the eye.
If you use Latanoprost in one eye, only that eye colour may change. This eye colour change may be permanent, but the long-term effects are uncertain. Notify your doctor if this occurs and schedule regular eye exams to monitor it. A very serious allergic reaction is rare. However, get immediate medical help immediately if you develop symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including severe itching, rash, swelling of the face/tongue/throat/trouble breathing.
