|a prostaglandin F2a analogue||
Latanoprost is a prostaglandin F2a analogue.It is a prostanoid selective FP receptor agonist that is believed to reduce the intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor.
It is used to treat certain kinds of glaucoma(open-angle glaucoma ocular hypertension). It is also used to treat a condition called hypertension of the eye. Latanoprost is used to increase the natural outflow of fluid (aqueous humor) from inside the eye into the bloodstream. It appears to work by increasing the outflow of fluid from the eye. This lowers the pressure in the eye.
Latanoprost may make your eyesight blurred for a short length of time. if this happens do not drive or operate machine or use any tools until your eye sight becomes clear again.
|Latanoprost ophthalmic solution||
Latanoprost ophthalmic solution is a topical medication used for controlling the progression of glaucoma or ocular hypertension, by reducing intraocular pressure. It is a prostaglandin analogue that works by increasing the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eyes.
It is also known by the brand name of Xalatan manufactured by Pfizer.For the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
Latanoprost ophthalmic solution contain a preservative called benzalkonium chloride which can be absorbed onto the surface of contact lenses and may discolour soft contact lenses.
|Side effects||Between 6% and 10% (between 1 in 20 and 1 in 6) of persons receiving latanoprost for 6 months report at least one side effect localized to the eyes. These side effects included Temporary blurred vision after application, eyelid redness, permanently darken eyelashes,Swelling or erosions of the cornea,a sensation of a foreign body, discoloration of the iris, itching, a temporary burning sensation during use, and stinging.

Other side effects which have been reported less frequently include dryness of the eyes, increased tearing, herpes simplex keratitis, eye pain and other eye-related discomfort.|
