Travoprost is used to reduce intraocular pressure in the management of glaucoma. I discuss the mechanism of action and adverse effects.

Travoprost is a prostaglandin analog that can help reduce intraocular pressure and reduce the risk of the potential complication of blindness.

Growth of eyelashes is a unique adverse effect associated with travoprost.

Latanoprost Pharmacology

Latanoprost is a prostaglandin F2 analog that can help reduce intraocular pressure and manage glaucoma.

Excessive eyelash growth is a potential adverse effect of latanoprost, although some patients may appreciate this.

Patients with a lighter color iris may notice that their eyes are turning more brown with the chronic use of latanoprost.

Corticosteroids are known to increase intraocular pressure and potentially oppose the beneficial effects of latanoprost.
