TRAVATAN OPHTHALMIC SOLUTION (TRAVOPROST)

Lower Ocular Hypertension and Stop the Progression of Glaucoma

It is very important to have the health of your eyes checked regularly, especially as your age advances and your body is undergoing changes. By the time you reach retirement age at 65, you should be visiting an optometrist once, even twice a year as intraocular pressure shows no symptoms and glaucoma can be present for a long time before your vision is affected.

If you have undiagnosed and untreated high intraocular pressure in one or both of your eyes, you could be headed for glaucoma. The pressure of your eyes are measured after drops of a numbing solution is used and your ophthalmologist will decide if the pressure is such that medications, such as Travatan Ophthalmic Solution, or a laser treatment may be required. Travatan Ophthalmic Solution can help lower your IOP, but it will not repair any previous damage caused by glaucoma.

How Travatan Ophthalmic Solution Works

Travatan Ophthalmic Solution or generic Travoprost is called a prostaglandin analogue that resembles the naturally produced prostaglandins in your body. As the drops are administered, Travatan Ophthalmic Solution will imitate the activity of the prostaglandins by acting on their receptors in your eyes that causes an increase in the drainage of the aqueous humor out of your eyeball. The result is less fluid gathering in the eyeball so pressure will lower. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Reasons for Intraocular Pressure

IOP (intraocular pressure) can occur if there is a problem with the drainage system in your eye or eyes. As new fluid is always being produced to fill your eye, an equal amount will drain out to maintain a steady pressure in your eyeballs. Whether there is an increase in fluid production or a decrease in the drainage activity, pressure can build and press against your optic nerve and cause permanent damage to your sight. Being over 40 years old, sustaining a previous eye injury, and even certain medications can cause a change in the pressure inside your eyeball.

Before You Use Travatan Ophthalmic Solution

Ask your doctor if Travatan Ophthalmic Solution is safe to use if you are pregnant, intending to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any current OTC and Rx meds you take or use, including herbal preparations and vitamin or dietary supplements. This information will help your doctor determine if Travoprost is the right medication for you.

Proper Care and Use of Travatan Ophthalmic Solution

After instilling Travatan Ophthalmic Solution, avoid driving and other activities until your vision is clear. Never touch the dropper to your eye or it could become contaminated. To reduce the risk of the eye drops draining into your nasal passages and to assure that the drops have been completely absorbed, when instilling the drops as directed, place an index finger to the corner of your eye closest to your nose and then close your eyes after the drops for 2 minutes. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share them with others.
