    hi Gary

    i think that this might vary from person to person.

    i have the redness and it has lasted 3 years now.

    not sure if it would go away if you changed to a different medication.

    when i mentioned my red eyes the opthalmologist's opinion was that saving eyesight was a more important consideration.

    sorry if this is not very cheerful to hear.

    I was just looking at this leaflet.

    I no longer need drops for glaucoma but because I have problems with ingredients, I used to be prescribed Cosopt.  They are preservative free eye drops for Glaucoma 

    It sounds as though you might be sensitive to an ingredient in the drops.  You need to talk to your Ophthalmologist about the reaction you are having.

    I had been taking Travatan eye drops for the past 5 years and constantly had a red eye. I was prescribed a number of anti-inflam' eye drops to try and reduce it but nothing worked. About a month ago I was taken off Travatan and now just remain using Combigan which was also prescribed with some Diamox tablets to reduce the pressure if need be. My eye is far more comfortable now and never red.
