Answer

Prostaglandin F2-alpha analogs

These agents decrease IOP by increasing uveoscleral outflow.

Latanoprost (Xalatan, Xelpros)

May decrease IOP by increasing outflow of aqueous humor.

Bimatoprost ophthalmic solution (Lumigan)

A prostamide analogue with ocular hypotensive activity. Mimics the IOP-lowering activity of prostamides via the prostamide pathway. Used to reduce IOP in open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Travoprost ophthalmic solution 0.004% (Travatan, Travatan Z)

Prostaglandin F2-alpha analog. Selective FP prostanoid receptor agonist believed to reduce IOP by increasing uveoscleral outflow. Used to treat open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
