Ganfort Description

Ganfort is a combination medicine that is prescribed by your doctor or ophthalmologist to treat intra-ocular pressure and to prevent any additional damage from glaucoma. Intra-ocular pressure can lead to glaucoma if it is not diagnosed and treated right away. This is why it’s so important to have regular eye exams to spot any problems before your vision is affected. Ganfort is not a cure for glaucoma, but it can help you avoid impaired eyesight and possible blindness.

How the 2 Active Ingredients Work in Your Eyes

Timolol Maleate is classified as a beta blocker. Once administered into your eye (s) as directed, it blocks the beta receptors so the production of the fluid in your eye, called aqueous humor, is decreased. To assist even further to reduce the pressure in your eye, Bimatoprost mimics prostaglandin, a chemical naturally produced throughout your body and can work to increase the drainage of aqueous humor from your eye.

The two active ingredients in Ganfort work in different ways to produce a combined effect that is greater than either medication produces on its own. Ocular hypertension is relieved and you can avoid possible vision loss or stop any further damage from occurring.

Conditions Treated by Ganfort

The front part of your eye contains a continuous supply of fluid that enters and exits simultaneously. If something happens that slows the fluid from draining from your eye or speeds up it’s production, the fluid builds up and can injure your retina or optic nerve. There are no symptoms to warn you that you have intra-ocular pressure (IOP) and glaucoma progresses slowly until you start to notice a change in your sight. By this time, it may be too late to repair any damage with medicine alone. However, it is not too late to stop more damage from occurring if you start using Ganfort to relieve the pressure. Some of the risk factors for developing IOP include trauma to the eye, certain medications, and genetics.

Before You Use Ganfort

If you are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are breast feeding, inform your doctor right away so it can be determined if the benefits of using Ganfort outweigh any risks. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions and allergies you have and any current over the counter and Rx medications you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, to make sure that Ganfort is safe for you to use. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before administering Ganfort and wait at least 15 minutes before putting them back in. Contact lenses can increase the effects of Ganfort or become discolored by some of the ingredients.

Ganfort Precautions

You should not drive, operate machinery, or attempt any unsafe practices after instilling Ganfort eye drops as your vision will be blurry temporarily. Ganfort may cause a change in your eye color and make your eye lashes longer. These changes may be permanent. Do not share Ganfort with anyone else. Take care to keep the tip of the Ganfort bottle sterile to avoid infection.
