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.

Comments for this study:

open angle (3 years ago):

My dermatologist did not tell me that this is a steroid and while I did say I suffer from severe glaucoma .. metronidazole had still been perscribe to be used twice daily. I have noticed my eyes to be sore and dry. Am concerned.
