What Is Tafluprost Used For?

How Does This Medication Work?

Tafluprost belongs to a class of medications known as prostaglandins. It works by opening the channels that drain fluid from the eye, helping the excess eye fluid to drain from the eye more easily. By reducing eye pressure, tafluprost can help prevent damage to the optic nerve and the vision loss that accompanies such damage.

Can Children Use Tafluprost?

Tafluprost is not approved for use in children. Talk to your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using this medicine in children.

What About Off-Label Uses?

On occasion, a healthcare provider may recommend tafluprost for something other than open angle glaucoma or high eye pressure. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, using this product to treat other types of glaucoma is considered an off-label tafluprost use.
