• What eye drops help relieve the sting of glaucoma drops?


    Question:

    What drops do you recommend to relieve the sting of glaucoma eye drops?


    Answer:

    We usually recommend using a lubricant eye drop (standard, not gel which would be too thick) 10 to 15 minutes before using your glaucoma drops. This may relieve the stinging sensation, which is often due to dry eye. Cold is also an effective anesthetic (pain killer). So consider keeping the lubricant eye drops in the refrigerator for additional relief from the temporary stinging, burning and itching.
