What Vizitrav is and what it is used for

Vizitrav eye drops are used to treat high pressure in the eye in adults, adolescents and children 2 months of age and older. This pressure can lead to a condition called glaucoma.

Your eyeballs contain a clear, watery fluid that nourishes the inside of the eye. The fluid always drains from the eye and more fluid is always produced.

If the eye fills faster than it empties, the pressure in the eye increases. If the pressure becomes too high, it can damage your vision.

Visitrav contains travoprost, a member of a group of medicines used to treat glaucoma called prostaglandin analogues. It works by increasing the outflow of fluid, which reduces the pressure in the eye. It can be used alone or with other drops, such as beta-blockers, which also reduce pressure.

Visitrav eye drops, solution, is a sterile solution that does not contain a preservative.

3. How to use Visitrav

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or doctor has told you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or the doctor who is treating your child.

Use Visitrav only to apply drops to your eyes or to your child's.

The recommended dose is 1 drop in the affected eye or eyes once a day - in the evening.

Use Visitrav in both eyes only if your doctor tells you to.

Use this medicine for as long as your doctor or the doctor treating your child tells you.

Instructions for use

• Remove the multi-dose container from the carton and write the date of opening of the carton and the bottle in the space provided.

• Take the medicine bottle and a mirror.

• Wash your hands.

• Remove the cap.

• Turn the bottle upside down with your thumb on the shoulder of the bottle and the other fingers on the bottom of the bottle. Squeeze the bottle repeatedly before first use - approximately 10 times until the first drop appears.

• Tilt your head or your child's back. Pull down the lower eyelid with a clean finger until a "pocket" forms between the eyelid and the eye. The drop must fall

Do not touch the eye or eyelid, adjacent areas or other surfaces with the dropper. This can infect the drops.

• Gently push down the bottom of the bottle to drop one drop of the medicine.

• If the drop misses the eye, try again.

• After using the medicine, press the corner of the eye to the nose with your finger. This helps to stop the medicine from entering the rest of the body.

• If you use drops for both eyes, repeat the same steps for the other eye.

• Close the cap of the multi-dose pack tightly immediately after use.

• Do not use more than one bottle of the medicine at a time. Do not open the cap until you need to use the multi-dose pack.

• You must throw away the bottle 4 weeks after first opening to prevent infections and use a new bottle.

If you or your child have used more Visitrav than you should

Wash all medicine from the eye with warm water. Do not take more drops until it is time for your next regular dose.

If you forget to use Visitrav

Continue with the next scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. Do not use more than one drop in the affected eye (s) on the same day.

If you stop using Visitrav

Do not stop taking this medicine without first talking to your doctor or the doctor who is treating your child. This is because the pressure in your eye or that of your child will not be able to be controlled, which can lead to vision loss.

If you or your child use eye preparations such as eye drops or ointment

Wait at least 5 minutes between applying Visitrav and other eye preparations.

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor, the doctor who is treating your child or your pharmacist.
