Product Description

Xalatan Eye Drop

The active ingredient of the drug is Latanoprost. It is an eye care medicine that reduces the amount of fluid in the eye.

Xalatan Eye Drop is a medicine used to reduce pressure in the eyes in people with glaucoma and ocular hypertension (high pressure in the eye).

If the pressure in your eye is too high it can damage your sight, potentially leading to blindness. It works by helping fluid flow from inside the eye into the blood.

Xalatan Eye Drop is suitable for adults and children and can be used by itself or in combination with other eye medicines to reduce pressure.

Follow the instructions given by your doctor and use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit. If you stop using it, pressure in the eye could increase and damage your sight.

Never use a bottle if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. If you wear contact lenses, make sure you remove them before instilling and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back.

The most common side effects include eyelashes changes, eye pain and sensitivity to light. It may also cause blurred vision, dryness in the eye, a gradual change in color of the eye, and other rare effects.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor. Your doctor may be able to tell you ways of reducing or preventing some side effects or suggest another treatment.

If your vision is blurred or you have other changes in sight for a time, do not drive until your vision is clear. This is usually a short-term side effect. Do not use this medicine if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding.
