Xalatan Glaucoma Treatment

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 9:08 am

Xalatan is used to treat certain types of glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye. It works to reduce pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steals sight without warning and often without symptoms. Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve acts like an electric cable with over a million wires and is responsible for carrying the images we see to the brain.

Things to consider before using Xalatan

Before using Xalatan, tell your doctor about any of the following: if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding; using any prescription or nonprescription medicine; if you wear contact lenses or having any other medical conditions; if you have an eye abrasion or infection; if you have closed-angle glaucoma; if you have kidney or liver disease; if you have an unusual or allergic reaction to latanoprost or other medicines, foods, dyes, or preservatives.

Xalatan may slowly change your eye color, increasing the amount of brown color in the iris. Color changes may be permanent even after your treatment ends, and may occur only in the eye being treated.

Xalatan side effects

Most severe: Blurred vision, burning and stinging, conjunctival hyperemia, foreign body sensation, itching, increased iris pigmentation and punctate epithelial keratopathy.

Most common: Eyelash changes, eyelid skin darkening, inner eye inflammation, eye color changes, blurred vision, excess blood in the eye, burning; stinging, sensation of something in the eye, itching.
