Avatar m tn I'm now prescribed Travatan and Timogel which are both BAK free and I now have no pain but, of course, the damage has been done. I have an appointment on Monday for corneal topographical mapping to assess whether a contact lens is likely to help.
Avatar f tn I will do as you have suggested for lumigan patients to put it in an hour earlier (before bedtime) and put in eye lubricant after. I know Lumigan has the BAK preservative which Travatan Z eliminated, is it BAK thats the main concern or something else in Lumigan?
Avatar m tn You might discuss stopping the lumigan for a week or two to see if that helps. If it does Travatan-Z is gentler on the eye and often better at lower IOP, also there is a new preservative free prostaglandin glaucoma eyedrop Zioptrin which might be helpful. I have a very large glaucoma practice and when patients have chronic red eyes and they are on alphagan P or Lumigan I suspect them as the cause first thing.
