Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Travoprost
Travoprost assigned to one eye, with latanoprost assigned to the fellow eye for intra-individual control. One drop, single dose. The eye, and the order in which the first test medicine was instilled (either travoprost or latanoprost), was randomly assigned.
Drug: Travoprost ophthalmic solution 0.004% with SofZia® preservative system (TRAVATAN Z®)
Ophthalmic solution for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension, one drop, single dose. Referred to as travoprost.
Other Name: TRAVATAN Z®
Active Comparator: Latanoprost
Latanoprost assigned to one eye, with travoprost assigned to the fellow eye for intra-individual control. One drop, single dose. The eye, and the order in which the first test medicine was instilled (either travoprost or latanoprost), was randomly assigned.
Drug: Latanoprost ophthalmic solution 0.005% (XALATAN®)
Ophthalmic solution for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension, one drop, single dose. Referred to as latanoprost.
