Eye changes: Latanoprostene may gradually change the colour of the eye, increasing the amount of brown pigment in the iris by increasing the number of melanosomes (pigment granules). The long-term effects on the eye and the chances of injury to the eye are currently unknown. The change in colour may be permanent. This effect has mostly been seen in patients with mixed-coloured eyes (e.g., blue-brown, grey-brown, green-brown, or yellow-brown). In patients with uniformly blue, grey, green, or brown eyes, the change has only rarely been seen. The change in colour occurs slowly, and may not be noticeable for several months to years. Latanoprostene has also been reported to cause darkening, thickening, and lengthening of eyelashes, as well as darkening of the eyelid.
Other eye conditions: The safety of using latanoprostene eye drops if you have other eye conditions may not be well known. If you have other eye conditions such as macular edema, uveitis or lens problems, or a history of herpetic keratitis, discuss with your doctor how latanoprostene may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Vyzulta (Latanoprostene-bunod), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
Kidney or liver function: Vyzulta (Latanoprostene-bunod) has not been studied for use by people with impaired kidney or liver function. If you have impaired kidney or liver function, discuss with your doctor how latanoprostene may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Vyzulta (Latanoprostene-bunod), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
