This is the first and only drug I have ever taken on a regular basis. I started it at the end of October 2014 following my annual eye pressure test at the hospital. I put one drop in each eye in the evening.
During my follow up visit to the hospital on Jan 26, 2015 I was advised that i had very early cataracts in both eyes. I have never been previously diagnosed with cataracts.
