    My pressures were 26 and 32 before treatment. After 3 months of Travatan Z use at bedtime, my pressures are now down to 21 and 26 and holding steady at those levels. I have had no side effects from Travatan Z. My doc wants further pressure reduction so he has added morning drops of Betimol.

    My eye pressure was at 27 (in each eye) and after several years of monitoring my eyes for glaucoma, my eye doctor recommended that I go on and start these drops. I began taking them (one in each eye at bedtime) about a month ago. At my follow up visit a few days ago, my pressure has come down to 15 (in each eye) and I can feel the difference it has made on my eyes. These drops have not given me an ... Show Full Comment

    I now have headaches and increased sensitivity to light. My eyes had been so sore, but because I was blind before my surgery several years ago, I took them for many years. Very dissatisfied with the outcome. Not a treatment.

    After using Travatan for three months, my pressures did drop from 16 to 14; but after cataract surgery, still on the Travatan, I suddenly developed a blind spot on one eye which the ophthalmologist said is macular edema - a severe side effect resulting from the use of Travatan. So now I am slowing going blind...will NEVER touch Travatan again!
