Travatan (travoprost 0.004%) is a prostaglandin analog. It works to reduce pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye.
Travatan is used to treat increased pressure in the eye (ocular hypertension) and open-angle glaucoma in patients who cannot use or do not respond to other medicines.
Travatan Z is a new formulation that eliminates benzalkonium chloride (BAK) from Alcon's existing Travatan solution and replaces BAK with SOFZIA(TM), a robust ionic buffered preservative system that is gentle to the ocular surface. Alcon developed this BAK-free version of Travatan because long-term use of topical solutions containing BAK may compromise the ocular surface and exacerbate conditions such as dry eye.
