My husband had glaucoma in his right eye a few years ago,

Customer Question

my husband had glaucoma in his right eye a few years ago, and is now blind in that eye. About 6 months ago, he developed an infection/inflammation in that eye and his pressure also went up. His dr. in France has prescribed various drops to reduce pressure in the eye and to handle the infection. His pressure is now under control, but the side effects are very upsetting: frequent and urgent urination, nose bleeds, nausea. What can you suggest for reducing these side effects while still keeping pressure low?
