Side Effects
I have recently been diagnosed with Glaucoma and being treated with Travatan Z. A month ago or more I was experiencing extreme pain in my Left eye. I thought either the Opcon A or the Travatan was causing the pain. My Dr said neither one should cause pain. I have been using Opcon A for 8 Yrs. So needless to say I am puzzled why the pain? This is also where the Glaucoma is, the left eye. Do you have any ideas?

Additional Thoughts
As I have mentioned using Opcon A for 8 years or better has been symptom free. It is a wonderful product and I have not found anything that compares to it. I have recommended it to many of people. It does not effect my asthma, or high B/P. where as the Travatan does. It has many side effects. I wish Opcon A could help my Glaucoma.
