There is debate concerning whether the use of Latanoprost in early postoperative period of cataract surgery and in glaucoma patients with uveitis as it may aggravate the inflammation and results in macular edema (ME), because of blood-ocular barrier disruption. However, there is no solid evidence for disruption of blood-ocular barrier with Latanoprost and aggravation of uveitis or ME formation. Similar to pseudophakic ME, the imaging ME in cases claimed to be secondary to Latanoprost is greater than clinical ME, happens mostly in complicated surgeries, and the vast majority resolve within weeks to months with using a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug...

AIM: To investigate the intraocular pressure (IOP) of adult guinea pig eyes with rebound tonometry (RBT), and assess the effects of four distinctive topical IOP reducing medications including Carteolol, Brimonidine, Brinzolamide and Latanoprost. METHODS: The IOPs of twenty-four 12-week-old guinea pigs (48 eyes) were measured every two hours in one day with RBT as baselines. All the animals were then divided into four groups (Carteolol, Brimonidine, Brinzolamide and Latanaprost groups, n=6)...

BACKGROUND: It is still uncertain whether travoprost has comparable or better efficacy compared with other prostaglandin analogues or timolol in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The authors performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to evaluate the incidence of reported side-effects and intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering effect of travoprost versus other prostaglandin analogues (latanaprost, bimatoprost, unoprostone) or timolol. METHODS: Systematic literature retrieval was conducted in Pubmed, EMBASE, Chinese Bio-medicine Database and Cochrane Controlled Trials Register to identify the potentially relevant randomized controlled trials...

Latanoprost (Xalatan) is a prostaglandin F(2alpha) analog prodrug which is activated when hydrolyzed in the cornea and plasma. Latanoprost reduces the intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing uveoscleral outflow. Other locally applied medications reduce IOP either by increasing the outflow of fluid through the trabecular drainage system or by reducing the production of fluid in the eye. Latanoprost, which is used topically in the eye at the low dose of 0.005% once daily, has been shown in phase III studies carried out in Scandinavia, the U...
