    I have used Travatan Z for over two years. It lowered my pressure but not low enough to be back in the normal range. My doc then added levobunolol and my pressure is now well into the normal range. I have had no noticeable side effects with either drug. I keep track of my Travatan Z usage.

    Easy to use . My pressure has maintained 16,17 or 18. HOWEVER, I AM VERY UPSET WITH THE EXTREMELY DARK CIRCLES UNDER MY EYES SINCE I STARTED THE MED. I look ill. I have never had dark circles under my eyes. Other than that have only experienced long lashes (nice).

    Horrible eye drops for me. Used them for 5 weeks. Extreme dry eyes and throat, eye itchiness, headaches, eye pain, stopped using and side effects still going after 10 days.

    It caused my eyes to get blurry, headache, sensitive to light, my brain felt like the blood vessels were either opening or closing and felt funny. Medication caused my sinus to get sinus headaches and runny nose...upset stomach...sticky/dry eyes, sensitive to light. I have been off for a few days and still having trouble with blurriness.
