Hi, No it will not help you.

Contact an ophthalmologist or ask your parhamacist.-

Xalatan

Latanoprost reduces pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye.

Latanoprost ophthalmic (for the eyes) is used to treat certain types of glaucoma( is a disease in which the optic nerve is damaged, leading to progressive, irreversible loss of vision. It is often, but not always, associated with increased pressure of the fluid in the eye) and other causes of high pressure inside the eye.

Good luck.-
