I’ve had glaucoma for years. Does your husband have any vision damage or only increased Intraocular pressure?
I took drops for years to lower my pressures. First I used Lumigan/Bimatoprost but it was very expensive so switched to Xalatan/ Latanoprost. Both kept my pressures down.
After I had cataract surgery my pressures remained low without any drops. Although not at first both medications eventually cashed burning, slightly blurred vision and my worst side effect was foreign object feeling. I was insistent there was something in my eye. My Mom also took the same medication but never had the foreign object feeling.
Wishing you both the best of health.

I had no foreign body sensation until an opthamalogist removed a cataract from the eye and placed in an interocular lens. Then and only then did I have (and still do) have a foriegn body feeling in the eye. Quite painful at times and then is when I started to lose my eyesight. I also need help. (Remove the lens??????????)No one wants to address this very serious problem) My other eye has been blind since birth which leaves my in a horror world. HELP PLEASE.
