Increase uveoscleral outflow of aqueous humor. One mechanism of action may be through induction of metalloproteinases in ciliary body, which breaks down extracellular matrix, thereby reducing resistance to outflow through the ciliary body.

Tafluprost (Zioptan)

Travoprost ophthalmic (Travatan, Travatan Z)

Bimatoprost (Latisse, Lumigan)
