Travoprost-Optic Pharmacodynamics
Travoprost, a synthetic analog of prostaglandin F2?, is a highly selective full agonist of the prostaglandin receptor FP and decreases intraocular pressure by increasing aqueous outflow through the trabecular meshwork and uveoscleral pathways
Intraocular pressure decreases approximately 2 hours after application, and the maximum effect is achieved after 12 hours.
Significant decrease in intraocular pressure may persist for up to 24 hours after a single use of the drug.

– Increased intraocular pressure
