Zioptan Drug Information
Zioptan Eye Drops Overview
Tafluprost is used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle type) or other eye diseases (such as ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure inside the eye can help prevent blindness. Zioptan Eye Drops works by regulating the flow of fluid within the eye to maintain a normal pressure.
How to Use Zioptan Eye Drops
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using tafluprost and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Apply Zioptan Eye Drops in the affected eye(s) as directed by your doctor, usually once daily in the evening. Do not use Zioptan Eye Drops more frequently than prescribed; using more can make it work less well. To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch. Look downward, gently close your eyes, and place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose). Apply gentle pressure for 1 to 2 minutes before opening your eyes. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink or rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed. Wait several minutes for your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery. If you are using another kind of eye medication (such as drops or ointments), wait at least 5 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the drops to enter the eye. Use Zioptan Eye Drops regularly to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use Zioptan Eye Drops at the same time each day. It is important to continue using tafluprost even if you feel well. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eye do not have symptoms.
