Fixed combination of Travoprost and Timolol

Detailed Description:

PURPOSE: To compare the efficacy of bimatoprost/timolol (BTFC) or travoprost/timolol (TTFC) fixed combinations on intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction in an Egyptian population.

METHODS: Patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) were randomized to receive either BTFC or TTFC. IOPs were measured at baseline, 2 weeks, and 1, 2, 4, and 6 months. The primary outcome measures were the mean change in IOP from baseline
