Take control of your eye health with XALATAN—one dose each day may reduce your high eye pressure

Reducing eye pressure has been shown to reduce the risk of visual field loss from glaucoma. XALATAN may be your partner in the treatment of high eye pressure, which may lead to glaucoma.

By lowering your eye pressure, XALATAN may reduce the risk of damage to your sight. You only have to use XALATAN once a day, so sticking to your treatment can be manageable.

Keep taking XALATAN as prescribed by your doctor for controlling high eye pressure to reduce the risk of developing glaucoma.
