Rescula & Diabetes

Rescula® (unoprostone ophthalmic solution) is a medication prescribed to treat ocular hypertension (high pressure in the eye) or open angle glaucoma. Although many people may benefit from this medication, Rescula may not be safe for everyone and could lead to complications in some cases.
 
For example, if you have any condition that increases your risk for macular edema (swelling of the macula, an area of the retina), such as diabetes, Rescula may not be the best choice for you. There have been reports of macular edema occurring in people who used Rescula. This condition can cause swelling in the macula, which can lead to vision loss. Let your healthcare provider know right away if you develop any changes in vision.
