    • Overview

      Patients diagnosed with glaucoma are typically on eye drops for life after diagnosis. Therefore it is important for patients and those who council them about their medications, to be knowledgeable about the disease and importance of topical therapy. Many times patients are on more than 1 eye drop, so understanding side effects and proper dosing is essential to effective treatment.
