Abstract: PURPOSE: To report a case of lash ptosis caused by latanoprost. DESIGN: Observational case report. METHODS: Retrospective chart review. RESULTS: A 61-year-old, ocular hypertensive man who was using latanoprost OU presented with trichomegaly and bilateral lash ptosis. The lash ptosis had not resolved 6 months after stopping latanoprost, and anterior lamellar repositions were performed. At last follow-up, 8 months after surgery, the lids were in a normal position, but the trichomegaly had reduced only slightly. CONCLUSIONS: Lash ptosis should be considered as a possible complication of latanoprost therapy.
