What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve, often caused by extra fluid that increases pressure in the eye.
Open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma. It develops gradually and often goes unnoticed at first. Regular eye exams are important to find early signs of damage to the optic nerve.
Is there a cure for glaucoma?
While there is no cure for glaucoma, studies show that lowering high eye pressure can help reduce the risk of glaucoma-related vision loss. That's why daily treatment of high eye pressure is very important. Remember, high eye pressure can slowly, but permanently, damage your optic nerve before you notice any change in vision.
What can I do to manage my glaucoma or high eye pressure?
Your doctor can recommend a prescription eye drop to help you manage your glaucoma or high eye pressure. One option is ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%.
What is ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%?
ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% ophthalmic solution is an FDA-approved eye medication used to lower high eye pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (high eye pressure). There is no FDA-approved generic version of ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%. If your doctor prescribes ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%, check to make sure you receive the correct medication when you pick it up.
Why did my doctor choose ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%?
Prescription eye drops are commonly used to reduce high eye pressure. ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% is a FDA-approved medication proven to lower high eye pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (high eye pressure).
How do I use ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%?
The recommended dose of ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% is 1 drop in the affected eye(s) 3 times a day, about 8 hours apart. If you use more than 1 type of topical eye drop, just be sure to apply them at least 5 minutes apart.
If you have open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (high eye pressure), it is important to continue your ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% therapy. Don’t skip or stop treatment (unless you have spoken to your doctor). Remembering to use your eye drops is easier if you make it part of your daily routine.
If you wear contact lenses, remove them first, then wait 15 minutes after using ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% before you put them back into your eyes.
What are the most common side effects of ALPHAGAN® P 0.1%?
In a 3-month long study, the most common side effects of ALPHAGAN® P 0.1% were eye allergies (allergic conjunctivitis), eye redness (hyperemia), and itchy eyes (eye pruritus). If you develop these or other side effects, contact your eye doctor immediately. 10% to 20% of patients (n=215) experienced allergic conjunctivitis, conjunctival hyperemia, and eye pruritus. 5% to 9% of patients (n=215) experienced burning sensation, conjunctival folliculosis, hypertension, ocular allergic reaction, oral dryness, and visual disturbance.
