Glaucoma Home > Travatan
Travatan is a prescription medicine approved to lower eye pressure in people with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. It works by opening the channels that allow fluid to leave the eye. Travatan comes in the form of an eyedrop that is typically applied once daily. It should only be used when other medications for treating high eye pressure have failed.
In April 2010, Alcon, Inc., announced that it would no longer be making regular Travatan. However, Travatan Z (which contains a gentler preservative) will continue to be available.
