BENEFITS OF GANFORT EYE DROP

In Treatment of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve which is essential for proper vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye.

Ganfort Eye Drop is used to reduce swelling and pressure inside the eye. This helps prevent complications of glaucoma such as blindness and improves the vision.

This medicine may be used alone or with other eye drops. Glaucoma cannot be prevented. Frequent monitoring, regular checkups can help detect the disease in its early stages.

In Treatment of Ocular hypertension

Ocular hypertension is a condition where the pressure inside the eye is higher than normal eye pressure due to fluid build-up.

Ganfort Eye Drop increases the flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream thereby lowering the increased eye pressure.

This prevents further damage or complications such as a change in vision or even loss of vision. You should only use Ganfort Eye Drop in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor.
