If intolerant to eye drops for glaucoma, what options?

After a few years of using drops, Timolol, Latanoprost, and Pilocarpine in various combinations, I've developed allergic reactions. Hard to sort out which is causing the allergetic reaction (Timolol?), and I don't like the headache and slight dizziness I feel with Pilocarpine.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Eye Conditions Support Group.

Sorry to hear about your reaction to glaucoma drops. I've been fighting glaucoma for over 30 years now. Periodically my glaucoma specialist does change drops. Currently I'm on pilocarpine, dorzolimide, and rocklatan which keeps pressure below 14.


I do not recommend the Xen shunt procedure . Try laser first if intolerant to drops after switching drops.
