• How can my wife eliminate her cough from glaucoma medications?


    Question:

    My wife has chronic cough caused by her glaucoma eye drops. She stopped taking the drops for a couple weeks, and also switched drops three times, but each time the coughing returns. She had one laser surgery that didn't work. What else can she do?


    Answer:

    At this point, it sounds like conservative measures have been exhausted. Ask your ophthalmologist about the different surgical alternatives that may help manage your wife’s glaucoma.
