Expert Advice

  • Xalatan Eye Drop 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).
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after instilling the drop.
  • Xalatan Eye Drop may cause brown pigmentation of the iris. This discoloration may be permanent.
  • Your eyelashes may become more dense and eyelid skin may darken. These changes should disappear after discontinuing Xalatan Eye Drop.
  • Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
