I take latanoprost for ocular hypertension - have been on them

Customer Question

I take latanoprost for ocular hypertension - have been on them for 5 months. My pressure is now normal. Is there any chance that I can be monitored and possibly come off them altogether? Am 73 years of age. My vision is good.

What was the pressure when you started taking the Xalatan? (latanaprost). What is the pressure now? I assume you have healthy nerves hence you simply have ocular hypertension rather than early glaucoma?
