Travoprostin Eye Drop

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Travoprostin Eye Drop is a medicine used to reduce pressure in the eyes in adults with glaucoma and high pressure in the eye. If the pressure in your eye is too high it can damage your sight, potentially leading to blindness. It works by helping fluid flow from inside the eye into the blood.

Travoprostin Eye Drop can be used alone or in combination with other eye medicines to reduce pressure. Follow the instructions given by your doctor and use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit. If you stop using it, pressure in the eye could increase and damage your sight. Never use a bottle if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. Make sure you remove contact lenses if you wear them and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back.

The most common side effects of this medicine include ocular hyperemia, decreased vision, eye discomfort, foreign body sensation, eye pain, and eye itching. If you experience any such side effects that bother you, talk to your doctor. They may be able to tell you ways of reducing or preventing some side effects or suggest another treatment. If your vision is blurred or you have other changes in sight for a time, do not drive until your vision is clear. This is usually a short-term side effect.

Do not use Travoprostin Eye Drop if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding.

Uses of Travoprostin Eye Drop

Benefits of Travoprostin Eye Drop

In Glaucoma

Travoprostin Eye Drop helps reduce pressure in your eyes (ocular hypertension) that can lead to an illness called glaucoma. It may be used alone or with other eye drops. Do not use it too often as that can make it less effective. You should only use it in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor. If you stop taking it, the pressure in your eye will not be controlled. This could lead to a loss of sight.

In Ocular hypertension

Travoprostin Eye Drop belongs to a group of medicines called prostaglandin analogue. It is used to reduce pressure in your eyes. It increases the flow of fluid from inside the eye into the bloodstream thereby lowering the increased eye pressure. If the pressure in your eye is too high, it can damage your sight. Take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor. If you stop taking it, the pressure in your eye will not be controlled.
