I don't like cosopt. Not all the time but sometimes the blurred vision is really bad. It seems like if you are physically moving around and doing things the blurred vision is worst. I have taken another drop, Xlatan at night and that drop is wonderful but after a complicated eye surgery the pressure in my eyes got worst and I'm now taking tree different drops for the pressure. Cospt is my least favorite.

My pressures were in the upper 20s while on Xalatan alone. The doctor prescribed Cosopt in addition, and after a month I am down to 18 in both eyes. The only issues I've had are mild and occasional and include eye stinging for a few moments after application and a slight bitter taste in the back of my throat.

blurred vision is very annoying. I spent $$$on medical testing for tia's but I feel the blurred vision was from the medication.

just started taking after four operations for eye injury- i believe i wasn't putting in the eye drops right untill i looked at info on web mdHow to use Cosopt Opht Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using timolol/dorzolamide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. This medication is for use in the eye(s), usually one drop in the affected eye(s) 2 times a day, or as directed by your doctor. To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface. Some products contain a preservative that may be absorbed by contact lenses. If you are using a product with a preservative and you wear contact lenses, remove the lenses before using the eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes before putting in your contact lenses. Tilt your head back, look upward and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop in your eye. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use. If you are using another kind of eye medication (e.g., drops or ointments), wait at least 10 minutes before applying other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. It is important to continue using this medication even if you feel well. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eyes do not feel sick. What conditions does Cosopt Opht treat?

The drug has reduced my pressure from 50 to 18, so I am happy about that; however, the blurred vision is difficult. This drug combined with Pilocarpine is not fun.

Seems as though my eyesight has diminished using this product although it has helped decrease my eye pressure from 20-22 down to 13-15.

The individual plastic packs are difficult to use. If you squeeze too hard all liquid comes in one drop; too soft the liquid gathers into one drop. Some vials had No liquid at all. The fear of losing out an application with each use is not worth the risk.

Eyes burn after drops applied

Comment from: legman, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: August 20

I have leg pain that could be from this drug.
