Expert advice for Latoprost Opthalmic Solution

  • Latoprost helps lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss.
  • For best results, put one drop once a day in the evening/night in the affected eye(s).
  • Latoprost may cause brown pigmentation of the iris which may be permanent.
  • You may notice eyelid skin darkening and an increase in the length, thickness, and number of your eyelashes. These changes should disappear after discontinuing Latoprost.
  • Take care to prevent contact of eye dispenser with eye, eyelid, eyelashes, or finger to avoid infection.
  • Remove contact lenses before using Latoprost and allow at least 15 minutes before re-inserting them.
  • When applying multiple eye medications, wait for at least 5-15 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after instilling the drop so that the medicine does not drain away from the eye.
