Active ingredient: Travoprost

Product Description

Travatan (Travoprost Ophthalmic Solution) is a once-a-day eye drop you take in the evening to help reduce pressure inside your eye. It belongs to a class of drugs called prostaglandin analogs. These drugs work by increasing the drainage of fluid inside the eye. They help fluid exit the eye through areas other than the drain your eye usually uses – in an area of tissue called the trabecular meshwork. This increase in drainage helps to lower IOP.

Travoprost, a prostaglandin analogue, is a highly selective full agonist which has a high affinity for the prostaglandin receptor, and reduces the intraocular pressure by increasing the outflow of aqueous humour via trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral pathways. Reduction of the intraocular pressure in man starts about 2 hours after administration and maximum effect is reached after 12 hours. Significant lowering of intraocular pressure can be maintained for periods exceeding 24 hours with a single dose.

Travatan eye drops are used to treat open-angle glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye (ocular hypertension). Travatan may also be used for other purposes. Usually, Travatan is used without prescription if you find out about this medication and your diagnose in details. It is more convenient to use the services of the Internet pharmacy where you can get maximum information about the medication, way of the use and pharmacological properties online. It is possible to buy Travatan online at any time and select the way of the delivery and order the drops to your door.

Travatan may cause a gradual change in the color of your eyes or eyelids and lashes, as well as increased growth or thickness of your eyelashes. These color changes, usually an increase in brown pigment, occur slowly and you may not notice them for months or years. Color changes may be permanent even after your treatment ends, and may occur only in the eye being treated. This could result in a cosmetic difference in eye or eyelash color from one eye to the other.

According to the data of various clinical studies which investigated the properties of this drug it has been found out that it differs by the high level of the pharmacological safety and is well tolerated by the majority of patients and does not cause negative reactions of the immune system and body in general.

Do not use the eye drops if the liquid has changed colors or has particles in it. Call your pharmacist for new medicine. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Directions for the use

Wash your hands before using the eye drops. The usual dose of this medicine is 1 drop into the affected eye every evening. Follow your doctor's dosing instructions very carefully. Do not use this medicine while wearing contact lenses. Travatan eye drops may contain a preservative that can discolor soft contact lenses. Wait at least 15 minutes after using this medicine before putting in your contact lenses. Use in pediatric patients below the age of 16 years is not recommended because of potential safety concerns related to increased pigmentation following long-term chronic use.

To apply the Travatan eye drops: Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye with the tip down. Look up and away from the dropper and squeeze out a drop. Close your eyes for 2 or 3 minutes with your head tipped down, without blinking or squinting. Gently press your finger to the inside corner of the eye for about 1 minute, to keep the liquid from draining into your tear duct.

Wait at least 5 minutes before using any other eye drops your doctor has prescribed. Do not touch the tip of the Travatan eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.

Way of use and dosage

Use: Reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Usual Adult Dose for Glaucoma: One drop in the affected eye(s) once a day in the evening.

Use: Reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Usual Pediatric Dose for Intraocular Hypertension:

16 years or older: One drop in the affected eye once a day in the evening.

Use: Reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Usual Pediatric Dose for Glaucoma:

16 years or older: One drop in the affected eye once a day in the evening.

Use: Reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

One drop in the affected eyes once a day in the evening. This drug should not be administered more than once per day since it has been shown that more frequent administration of prostaglandin analogs may decrease the intraocular pressure lowering effect. Reduction of the intraocular pressure starts approximately 2 hours after the first administration with maximum effect reached after 12 hours. If more than one topical ophthalmic drug is being used, the drugs should be administered at least five minutes apart.


Do not allow the Travatan dropper to touch any surface, including the eyes or hands. If the dropper becomes contaminated it could cause an infection in your eye, which can lead to vision loss or serious damage to the eye.

Pigmentation - Travoprost ophthalmic solution has been reported to increase the pigmentation of the iris, periorbital tissue (eyelid), and eyelashes. Pigmentation is expected to increase as long as travoprost is administered. After discontinuation of travoprost, pigmentation of the iris is likely to be permanent, while pigmentation of the periorbital tissue and eyelash changes have been reported to be reversible in some patients. The long-term effects of increased pigmentation are not known. While treatment with Travatan can be continued in patients who develop noticeably increased iris pigmentation, these patients should be examined regularly.

Eyelash Changes - Travatan may gradually change eyelashes and vellus hair in the treated eye. These changes include increased length, thickness, and number of lashes. Eyelash changes are usually reversible upon discontinuation of treatment.

Intraocular Inflammation - Travatan should be used with caution in patients with active intraocular inflammation (e.g. uveitis) because the inflammation may be exacerbated.

Macular Edema - Macular edema, including cystoid macular edema, has been reported during treatment with travoprost ophthalmic solution. Travatan should be used with caution in aphakic patients, in pseudophakic patients with a torn posterior lens capsule, or in patients with known risk factors for macular edema.

Angle-closure, Inflammatory or Neovascular Glaucoma - Travatan has not been evaluated for the treatment of angle-closure, inflammatory, or neovascular glaucoma.

Bacterial Keratitis - There have been reports of bacterial keratitis associated with the use of multiple-dose containers of topical ophthalmic products. These containers had been inadvertently contaminated by patients who, in most cases, had a concurrent corneal disease or a disruption of the ocular epithelial surface.

Use with Contact Lenses - Contact lenses should be removed prior to instillation of Travatan and may be reinserted 15 minutes following its administration.

Possible side effects

Common side effects of Travatan include:

Eye color changes: Some patients may experience darkening of the iris (the colored part of the eye) which is most noticeable in patients who receive treatment in only one eye. These changes may be permanent.

Eyelash changes: Patients may also experience growth and thickening of their eyelashes, and/or darkening of the skin around the eye. These changes are usually reversible.

Hyperemia and other adverse reactions: The most common side effect with Travatan is redness of the eye (also known as ocular hyperemia). Other side effects include eye discomfort, a feeling of something in the eye, eye pain and itching.
