Travoprost does require a doctors prescription.

Travoprost does require a doctors prescription. If you are considering this medication to grow your lashes, I would advise against it and use Latisse. Latisse has been specifically formulated for eyelash enhancement.

Travoprost vs Latisse

+1
Travoprost is a ophthalmic solution used for glaucoma. It is NOT the same concentration or ingredient as Latisse. It does require a doctor's prescription, meaning if you decide to try to use it for something cosmetic, your insurance will think you actually have glaucoma. This is why this is NOT recommended to do!
