I was diagnosed early dry AMD and early Glaucoma about 1.5 yrs back. My eye sight was reasonable when diagnosed and it is quite alright even now. I have been using Glaucoma eye dropsTravatan once a day and Azopt twice a day for the last about 10 months. Recently I felt slight nasal congestion. Though there were no other major asthmasymptoms, I got suspicious that it may be start of asthma problem as contained in side effects of above eye drops. I consulted the chest specialist who examined me, did a test with Peak Flow meter which was OK. Yet he prescribed use of Nasal sprays and inhalers so that nasal congestion gets cleared if at all there. After reading brochures of these sprays/inhalers, I noticed that such sprays/inhalers can raise eye pressures, hence patients of Glaucoma have to be very cautious about it. Hence I have not used them so far.
Can I have the views/experience of those who have been confronted with such a situation?
