Monoprost®

The First Preservative-Free Prostaglandin in Canada1

Your First Choice in First-Line Treatment

The use of preservatives in the treatment of glaucoma should be avoided due to their detrimental effects on the ocular surface and consequently on their tolerance.

  • Monoprost contains latanoprost 50 µg/ml in a preservative-free, single-dose eye drop formulation2
  •  Latanoprost is a selective prostanoid FP receptor agonist which reduces intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing the outflow of aqueous humour2

Monoprost is indicated for the reduction of elevated IOP in patients with open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. It reduces the risk of ocular surface problems that have been reported to be caused by long-term use of preservative-containing eye drops.3,4

Key Features

  • Long-lasting reduction in IOP
  •  Preservative-free formulation
  •  One single-dose container holds enough solution for both eyes
  •  Significantly lower hyperaemia and other symptoms on instillation than Xalatan with non-inferior efficacy3,4

Monoprost has been shown to provide non-inferior IOP control compared to Xalatan, with statistically significantly lower hyperaemia and symptoms on instillation.3

Studies where patients have been switched from preserved latanoprost to Monoprost have demonstrated reductions in the frequency and severity of hyperaemia and other symptoms.4

A single-dose contains enough eye drops solution to treat both eyes.
