From this study (1 week ago):
In June of 2012 my mother had an operation to relieve pressure from both of her eyes. Since then she has experienced hallucinations, ie: Charles Bonnet syndrome.
I am aware that both of these eye drops can cause these symptoms, and would like to find out if there are any other alternatives, in lieu of Travatan & Combigan. Also I'm aware that these eye drops can decrease a person's vision gradually, therefore can a person just stop taking these eye drops altogether? Will be awaiting your reply.
