What is latanoprost and netarsudil ophthalmic?

Latanoprost and netarsudil ophthalmic (for the eyes) is a combination medicine used to treat open-angle glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye.

You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to latanoprost or netarsudil.

Tell your doctor if you have ever had:

  • swelling or an infection in your eye;
  • damage to the surface of your eye (also called the cornea);
  • herpes infection of the eyes; or
  • eye surgery or injury affecting the lens of your eye.

Latanoprost can cause a gradual change in the color of your eyes or eyelids and lashes, usually an increase in brown pigment. You may also notice increased growth or thickness of your eyelashes. These changes 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.

Latanoprost and netarsudil ophthalmic is not approved for use by anyone younger than 18 years old.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

The usual dose of this medicine is 1 drop into the affected eye every evening. Follow your doctor's dosing instructions very carefully.

Tell your doctor right away if you have an eye injury or eye infection, or if you plan to have eye surgery.

Do not use while wearing soft contact lenses. A preservative in this medicine could permanently stain the lenses. Use the medicine at least 15 minutes before inserting your contact lenses.

Wash your hands before using eye medication.

To apply the eye drops: Tilt your head back slightly and pull down your lower eyelid to create a small pocket. Hold the dropper above the eye and squeeze a drop into this pocket. Close your eyes for 1 or 2 minutes.

Use only the number of drops your doctor has prescribed.

Wait at least 5 minutes before using any other eye drops your doctor has prescribed.

Do not touch the tip of the eye dropper or place it directly on your eye. A contaminated dropper can infect your eye, which could lead to serious vision problems.

Store in the refrigerator. Protect from light and do not freeze. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.
