R.sup.1 is a substituted or unsubstituted aryloxyalkyl group,

each of R.sup.2 and R.sup.3 which are independent of each other, is a hydrogen atom or an acyl group, or forms a single bond together with Z,

X is --CH.sub.2 --, --O-- or --S--,

Z is --OR.sup.4, --NHCOR.sup.5, --NHSO.sub.2 R.sup.6 or --SR.sup.7, or forms a single bond together with R.sup.2 or R.sup.3,

each of R.sup.4, R.sup.5, R.sup.6 and R.sup.7 which are independent of one another, is a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group, an alkenyl group, an alkynyl group, a cycloalkyl group, an aryl group or an aralkyl group,

and a dual line consisting of solid and broken lines is a single bond, a cis-double bond or a trans-double bond.

2. The compound according to claim 1, wherein R.sup.1 is a phenoxymethyl group, a 3,5-dichlorophenoxymethyl group or a 3-chlorophenoxymethyl group.

3. The compound according to claim 1, which is 16-phenoxy-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprostaglandin F.sub.2.alpha., 16-(3-chlorophenoxy)-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprostagla ndin F.sub.2.alpha., 16-phenoxy-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-13,14-dihydro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprost aglandin F.sub.2.alpha. or an alkyl ester or a salt thereof.

4. A medicine containing the compound according to claim 1 as an active ingredient.

5. The medicine according to claim 4, which is a preventive or therapeutic medicine for an eye disease.

6. The medicine according to claim 5, wherein the eye disease is glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

8. The medicine according to claim 4, 5 or 6, wherein X is --CH.sub.2 --.

9. The medicine according to claim 4, 5 or 6, wherein both R.sup.2 and R.sup.3 are hydrogen atoms.

10. The medicine according to claim 4, 5 or 6, wherein Z is --OR.sup.4.

11. The medicine according to claim 9, wherein R.sup.1 is a phenoxymethyl group, a 3,5-dichlorophenoxymethyl group or a 3-chlorophenoxymethyl group.

12. A medicine containing 16-phenoxy-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprostaglandin F.sub.2.alpha., 16-(3-chlorophenoxy)-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprostagla ndin F.sub.2.alpha., 16-phenoxy-15-deoxy-15,15-difluoro-13,14-dihydro-17,18,19,20-tetranorprost aglandin F.sub.2.alpha. or an alkyl ester or salt thereof as an active ingredient.
