    Initially I had SLT laser and it only worked for a few months. Now on Latanoprost. My current IOP is L:11 and R: 13. No side effects and I rarely miss eye when applying. I have open angle glaucoma.

    Lowered my eye pressure in conjunction with 2 other drops. By itself it didn't work. Since I've been using these drops I seem to have more dreams while sleeping. Mostly good dreams.
