Xalatan 50mcg/ 2.5ml - Eye Drops

latanoprost latanoprost is regulating the flow of fluid within the eye which results in lower pressure.
It is prostanoid selective FP receptor agonist that is believed to reduce the intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor. Studies in animals and man suggest that the main mechanism of action is increased uveoscleral outflow. Elevated IOP represents a major risk factor for glaucomatous field loss. The higher the level of IOP, the greater the likelihood of optic nerve damage and visual field loss.
