Comments from or about the patient: After taking these meds for the treatment of rosacea for which I applied the wash and lotion on my face only, I was diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma followed by a cataract in my right eye. The first question my eye doctor asked following elevated pressures in both eyes was had I been taking any steroids. I had not but my dermatologist mentioned later that the Metronidazole cream was also a steroid.
