Hello Not really a new discussion as I asked this before but have not received any asnswers. Has anyone on Azopt glaucoma drops had trouble with side effects and if so what and mostly what I would like to know is was it immediate or did it happen weeks/months later. I am trying to decide if the tight chest and cough are caused by the azopt or is it just my normally mild asthma or rhinitis. I do put the finger over the corner of the eye after instilling the the drop and only eye is at the moment being treated. I had the same problem with xalatan but worse and was taken off it. This has only happened weeks after starting the drug. I wonder if it might be the preservative. The doctor at the eye clinic did say I could try xalatan preservative free but I was not sure about eye colour changes and longer lashes with only one eye being treated so opted for Azopt after failed lased treatment. I was also told that I could have shunts put in but that like the laser they don't always work. Have been been trying to hold on until my next appointment in 3 weeks. By the way no real side effects with the eye just a little blurred after putting in the drops which is good as I have blepharitis as well.
