Description

Why are Xalatan Eye Drops prescribed?

Xalatan Eye Drops (Latanoprost) are used to treat certain types of glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye. It is classified as an ophthalmic glaucoma agent and lowers pressure inside the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye. Latanoprost Eye Drops (Generic) is also available in addition to the brand name Xalatan in the strength of 0.005%.

 

What is the most effective way to use Xalatan Eye Drops?

Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not use Xalatan in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. The usual dose of Xalatan is 1 drop into the affected eye every evening. Follow your doctor's dosing instructions very carefully.

  • Do not use Xalatan while wearing soft contact lenses. A preservative in this medicine could permanently stain the lenses. Use the medicine at least 15 minutes before inserting your contact lenses.
  • Wash your hands before using the eye drops.
  •   To apply the Xalatan eye drops:
    1. Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye with the tip down. Look up and away from the dropper and squeeze out a drop.
    2. Close your eyes for 2 or 3 minutes with your head tipped down, without blinking or squinting. Gently press your finger to the inside corner of the eye for about 1 minute, to keep the liquid from draining into your tear duct.
    3. Wait at least 5 minutes before using any other eye drops your doctor has prescribed.
  • Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.
  • Do not use the eye drops if the liquid has changed colors or has particles in it. Call your pharmacist for new medicine.
  • Tell your doctor right away if you have an eye injury or eye infection, or if you plan to have eye surgery.
  • Store an unopened bottle of Xalatan eye drops in a refrigerator. Do not freeze.
  • After your first use, store the eye drops at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use. Throw away the medicine after 6 weeks have passed since you first opened the bottle.

Everything about this order was easy. Canadian Med Pharmacy called me per a previously set-up reminder; the order was verbally confirmed, as well as my payment method and the information was verified. I was notified when the order was placed, as well as when the order was shipped. At that point, I requested a statement for my medical and tax records, and it was promptly emailed to me.
