Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. The burning is quite normal and may be mediated by using an artificial tear 4-5 mins before putting the drop in.
Doctor DanB : This drop works very well though many ophthalmologists believe a drop like Lumigan, Xalatan, or Travatan is a better first-line option.
Doctor DanB : Does this make sense?
