Tools and resources to help you stick with your treatment plan for your high eye pressure
You've taken a big first step in caring for your vision by visiting your eye doctor and getting treated! Now it's important to stick with your treatment plan for your high eye pressure, as prescribed by your doctor.
Glaucoma is a lifelong condition. Once your eye pressure is under control, it is important to keep it in check by using your drops each day.
The tools and resources shown below are designed to help you learn more about and manage your condition.
- Learn how to get a "brand-name XALATAN® (latanoprost ophthalmic solution)" prescription from your doctor AND brand-name XALATAN at the pharmacy with the Take Action Today Tip Sheet.
- Learn how to administer XALATAN drops and keep track of your eye pressure during treatment with the XALATAN Administration Guide & Progress Tracker. (Don't stop using your eye drops unless instructed by your doctor.)
XALATAN is for the treatment of high eye pressure/intraocular pressure (IOP) in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
Important Safety Information
Like all medicines, XALATAN® (latanoprost ophthalmic solution) can have side effects. These side effects are usually mild and tolerable and may include blurred vision, burning and stinging, eye redness, the feeling of something in the eye, eye itching, increased pigmentation (darkening) of eye color, or irritation of the clear front surface of the eye.
XALATAN may slowly cause darkening of the eye color due to increased brown color, darkening of the eyelid and eyelashes, and increased growth and thickness of eyelashes. Color changes can increase as long as XALATAN is administered, and eye color changes are likely to be permanent.
There have been reports of bacterial keratitis associated with the use of multiple-dose containers of topical ophthalmic products.
The recommended dosage is one drop (1.5 µg) in the affected eye(s) once daily in the evening. If one dose is missed, treatment should continue with the next dose as normal.
Patients should always ask their doctors for medical advice about adverse events.
