Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
The lotemax, which is a steroid, is the more risky drop to use. As you have already noted it can, in a small sub-population of patients, cause glaucoma (steroid induced glaucoma) with extended use.
The good news? If you need to use the steroid drops for a few days or so it won't impact your eye pressure....it usually takes at least 3 weeks to see an increase in intraocular pressure in those patients who are at risk for steroid induced glaucoma.
So, to answer your question the bepreve and the vigamox are the safer of the drops to use that you have mentioned.
And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)
