About Ganfort

Ganfort is used to reduce intraocular pressure. It is used in adult patients who have "Open-angle glaucoma" or ocular hypertension that does not respond sufficiently to eye drops ophthalmic drugs containing beta-blockers or prostaglandin analogues (other medicinal products) used for these ailments). The eye contains a clear, watery liquid that maintains the inside of the eye. This fluid is continuously drained from the eye and new fluid is generated to replace it. If the fluid doesn't drain quickly enough, the pressure inside the eye increases and your vision could be damaged in the long term (a condition called glaucoma).

What is Ganfort?

Ganfort is used to reduce intraocular pressure. It is used in adult patients who have "Open-angle glaucoma" or ocular hypertension that does not respond sufficiently to eye drops ophthalmic drugs containing beta-blockers or prostaglandin analogues (other medicinal products) used for these ailments). "Ocular hypertension" means pressure in the eye that is higher than usual. In glaucoma of open-angle, the cause of the high pressure lies in the fact that the eye does not drain enough liquid. This medication can only be dispensed with a prescription.

How does it work?

Ganfort eye drops work by Increasing intraocular pressure causes damage to the retina (light-sensitive membrane in the back of the eye) and on the optic nerve that sends signals from the eye to the brain. This can produce severe vision loss and even blindness. By reducing the pressure, Ganfort reduces the risk of suffering these injuries.

Ganfort contains two active ingredients, bimatoprost, and timolol, which decrease eye pressure through different mechanisms. Bimatoprost is a prostaglandin analog (copy of the natural substance prostaglandin) that works by increasing fluid drainage from the eye. Timolol is a beta-blocker that works by reducing fluid production in the eye. The combination of these two active ingredients has an additive effect, reducing the pressure in the eye to a greater degree than each one of the components separately.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Ganfort eye drops are used to treat elevated eye pressure in adults, including the elderly. Such high pressure can cause glaucoma. Your doctor will prescribe GANFORT unit dose if other eyedrops containing beta-blockers or prostaglandin analogues have not had sufficient effect on their own.

How do I use it?

Follow the exact instructions for the administration of this medicine indicated by your doctor or pharmacist. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again.

The recommended dose is one drop administered once a day, either in the morning or at night, in each eye that requires treatment. Use this medicine at the same time every day.

Instructions for use

Wash your hands before using it. Make sure the single-dose container is intact before using this medicine. The solution should be used immediately after opening the package. To avoid contamination, do not let the tip of the single-dose container touch the eye or any other surface.

  1. Separate one of the single-dose containers from the strip
  2. Hold the single-dose container in a vertical position (with the cap up) and rotate the cap until it comes off
  3. Gently pull the lower eyelid down to form a pouch. Invert the single-dose container and gently squeeze until a drop falls into the affected eye or eyes
  4. Keeping the eye closed, press down on the tear sac of the eye (where it joins the nose) for 2 minutes. This action will help prevent GANFORT single dose from passing to the rest of the body
  5. Discard the single-dose container after use, even if there is still a solution inside
