Tafluprost (trade names Taflotan and Saflutan) is a prostaglandin analogue used topically (as eye drops) to control the progression of glaucoma and in the management of ocular hypertension. It reduces intraocular pressure by increasing the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eyes.

Other prostaglandin analogues for glaucoma management include Xalatan (latanoprost), Travatan (travoprost), Lumigan (bimatoprost) and Travatan-Z, which is a preservative-free version of Travatan.
