Comment:
My eye pressure was in the late 20s in both eyes within 4 weeks it was in the teens so its working. Side effects are eyelash growth, hair growing under my eyes, feeling very anxious all the time and can get depressed. Gas, stomach upset. Red blotchy skin on my face, bloodshot eyes, blurring vision at times. Increased appetite I have put 14 pounds on in weight in the first 5 weeks of using Travopro ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Bad experience with Travatan Z. Although the drops didn't burn, my eye became fiery red and about 2 hours after instillation, I developed severe eye pain - a throbbing ache. The eye felt bruised, like I'd been punched in the eye. Also had severe sensitivity to light. No visual problem. Happened each of the 4 days I used it, so it didn't get better with time. Now on a different med.

Comment:
Travatan has been effective for me for the last two years with the reduction in the pressure,but with side effects like itching and redness in the eye. However, recently my wife noticed hair growth under my eyes. I did not believe that Travatan did it until I read one of the reviewers had the same effects. Not sure what to do now until I see my doctor next month.

Comment:
Worked fine in lowering the pressure in my eyes (from late 20s/30) to 14/15 but I experienced growth of eye lashes (not that this can categorically be attributed to the taking of this drug) to the extent that they made my eyes sore and red (apart from looking very feminine!). For anybody else suffering similarly, try cutting eye lashes with nail scissors. Not easy but did the trick for me. Changed ... Show Full Comment
