For Glaucoma “My eyes are very red and everyone thinks I have been smoking weed,-that’s how bad they look. They hurt and are light sensitive. I am going to ask to change to something else. I can’t deal with this.”

For Glaucoma “I am not a recently diagnosed glaucoma patient. This medication was introduced when my previous medication was no longer working well. Although this drug lowered my pressure significantly, the side effect produced was extreme lupus-like symptoms which I continue to experience over seven months later. After taking the drug for two weeks my ophthalmologist discontinued its use. I realize there are side effects with all drugs. This is one in which I was not adequately informed of the risk and which I regret having taken..”

For Glaucoma “so far in 1st 6 weeks has lowered my eye pressure from 23 in both eyes to 14 in both eyes. It is a beta blocker so also can lower your blood pressure. I’ve reduced that effect by putting pressure at side of nose-corner of eyes with my fingers, where medicine can enter the blood stream. I recommend those that don’t do this technique, see how to do it correctly on some instructional you tube videos.”

For Glaucoma “I’ve had glaucoma since I was 9, and I’ve tried many glaucoma medications. I’ve also had glaucoma surgeries. Combigan has been the most effective drop for me, with fewer side effects than some other drops I have tried.”

For Glaucoma “I was on Betoptic for years and my pressure was still a bit higher than we wanted it to be. After some trial & error, we’ve discovered that if I put the Combigan in one eye and the Betoptic in the other, my pressure is better than it’s ever been. Around 14 which is unheard of me. It’s working great and the only side effect I have is a bit of redness at times.”
