Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml belongs to the class of ophthalmic preparations. It is used for the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Glaucoma is an eye condition that causes damage to the optic nerve (necessary for optimal vision) as a result of unusual high eye pressure. Ocular hypertension is an increase in ocular pressure caused by inadequate aqueous humor outflow (fluid in the eye that maintains normal pressure by its continuous flow).
Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml contains Travoprost, a prostaglandin analogue that reduces elevated ocular pressure by enhancing the outflow of aqueous fluid.
Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml should be used as prescribed by your doctor. Conjunctival hyperemia (a sign of acute anterior inflammation), decreased visual acuity, eye discomfort, foreign body sensation, pain and pruritus (itching) may occur in some situations. The majority of side effects do not require medical treatment and fade away with time. However, if the side effects persist, consult your doctor.
If you are allergic to Travoprost or any ingredients present in the Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml, inform the doctor. It is recommended not to take Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml if you are a pregnant or nursing mother without first consulting your doctor. If you are using more than one ophthalmic medicine, give each one (drug) at least a ten-minute gap. Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml may induce temporary blurred vision; therefore, avoid driving or operating machinery until your vision is clear. Before using the Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml, inform your doctor about your medical history and other medications you are currently taking to rule out any potential negative effects.
Ocular hypertension, Glaucoma.
The intraocular pressure (the pressure built inside the eyeball) is naturally maintained by a normally flowing liquid known as aqueous humour. If this outflow of liquid gets blocked, then aqueous pressure starts putting more pressure within the eyeball. Excessive pressure must be managed; otherwise, it can damage the optic nerve and impair vision. Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml is a well-known medication for open-angle glaucoma that effectively reduces excessive pressure by inhibiting prostaglandin action in the eye. Prostaglandin is a naturally occurring chemical that contributes to eye dryness. Travoflo 0.004% Eye Drops 3Ml functions as a synthetic prostaglandin that works similarly to natural ones by increasing the drainage of aqueous humour inside the eyeball, resulting in a decrease in intraocular pressure.

Ocular hypertension: Ocular hypertension occurs when the pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure or IOP) is higher than normal. Ocular hypertension is typically caused by a blockage in the eye's drainage ducts or an excess of aqueous humour.
Glaucoma: Glaucoma is an eye condition that occurs when the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, is injured. It is usually caused by a build-up of fluid in the front of the eye, which raises the pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma can cause vision loss if it is not detected and treated early. Early detection and treatment can help keep your vision from deteriorating.
