Ocular use; Use in adults (including the elderly): The recommended dosage is one drop in the affected eye(s) once daily. Optimal effect is obtained if the product is administered in the evening. If one does is missed, treatment should continue with the next dose as normal.
The dosage of the product should not exceed once daily since it has been shown that more frequent administration decreases the intraocular pressure lowering effect.
If more than one topical ophthalmic drug is being used, the drugs should be administered at least five minutes apart.
Contact lenses should be removed before instillation of the eye drops and may be reinserted after 15 minutes.
Pediatric Population: Latanoprost eye drops may be used in paediatric patients at the same posology as in adults. No data are available for preterm infants (less than 36 weeks gestational age). Data in the age group <1 year (4 patients) are limited.
