I've been using travatan z for about 3 months. first few week, it was itchy and quite red, it gradually gets better. Now, the redness is still present, afternoon and night eyes seem to be more red. when I apply travatav z at night redness seem to be less. Although in my opinion, the redness is not too bad, my doctor now thinks I am allergic to all the drops so SLT, if fails, then operation may be necessary (travatan z has dropped my pressure from initial 24-25 to 15-16) In short, other than moderate redness, I don't have any complaints and quite happy with the drops. Do you think SLT / operation is necessary at this stage (she thinks my eyes are red)? thanking you in advance
You should trust the judgement of your eye specialist as they are the experts. If you are unsure then you should seek another professional opinion.
