Latanoprost Ophthalmic Eye Drops to reduce the pressure in your dog's eye caused by primary glaucoma. Many dogs with glaucoma face partial or complete loss of vision due to the disease. Glaucoma causes the aqueous humor, the eye's normal fluid, to stop draining properly from the eye. The additional fluid puts pressure called Intraocular Pressure (IOP) on the eye that can damage the optic nerve and cause loss of vision. Latanoprost Ophthalmic is a prescription medication that can reverse that process. These eye drops, which are in a class of drugs called prostaglandin F2-alpha agonists, increase the amount of fluid flowing out of the eye, therefore reducing pressure in the eye. Often Latanoprost is prescribed when other ophthalmic treatments for glaucoma have failed.
Latanoprost Ophthalmic Solution 0.005% 2.5 ml increases the volume of fluid drained from the eyes, reducing eye pressure.
Latanoprost is a prostaglandin F2α analogue indicated for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
