Select Important Safety Information

Macular edema, including cystoid macular edema, has been reported during treatment with prostaglandin F2α analogs. ZIOPTAN should be used with caution in aphakic patients, in pseudophakic patients with a torn posterior lens capsule, or in patients with known risk factors for macular edema.

In clinical trials of patients receiving either preservative-containing or preservative-free ZIOPTAN, the most common pooled adverse reaction observed was conjunctival hyperemia, which was reported in a range of 4% to 20% of patients.
