If you use tafluprost in only one eye, you should know that there may be a difference in color between your eyes after using tafluprost. Tafluprost also may cause darkening of the color of the skin around your eyes, an increase in the length, thickness, color, or number of your eyelashes, or fine hair on your eyelids. The eyelash changes and any darkening of the skin around your eyes usually go away when you stop using tafluprost.
