Description

What is Xalatan?

Xalatan is a brand-name prescription medicine with the generic name Latanoprost. It is classified as an ophthalmic glaucoma agent or antiglaucoma, and prostaglandin agonist. This drug works by increasing the outflow of fluid called aqueous humor, resulting in decreased intraocular pressure (IOP) in the eyes. 

Xalatan uses

Xalatan for glaucoma, specifically open-angle glaucoma and chronic angle-closure glaucoma. This drug helps decrease the high intraocular pressure (IOP) present in these two conditions. 

This drug is also used to decrease the elevated intraocular pressure in adults who have ocular hypertension, a condition which can lead to glaucoma, so people who have this condition are sometimes referred to as “glaucoma suspects”.
