Reduction of elevated intraocular pressure
• in patients with open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension.
• in paediatric patients with elevated intraocular pressure and paediatric glaucoma.
Posology and method of administration
Recommended dosage for adults (including the elderly):
Recommended therapy is one eye drop in the affected eye(s) once daily. Optimal effect is obtained if Latanoprost eye drops is administered in the evening.
The dosage of Latanoprost eye drops should not exceed once daily since it has been shown that more frequent administration decreases the intraocular pressure lowering effect.
If one dose is missed, treatment should continue with the next dose as normal.
As with any eye drops, to reduce possible systemic absorption, it is recommended that the lachrymal sac is compressed at the medial canthus (punctal occlusion) for one minute. This should be performed immediately following the instillation of each drop.
Contact lenses should be removed before instillation of the eye drops and may be reinserted after 15 minutes.
If more than one topical ophthalmic medicinal product is being used, the medicinal products should be administered at least five minutes apart.
Latanoprost eye drops may be used in paediatric patients at the same posology as in adults. No data are available for preterm infants (less than 36 weeks gestational age). Data in the age group < 1 year (4 patients) are limited (see section 5.1).
