Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Elevated Intraocular Pressure (IOP) During Treatment [ Time Frame: 55 days ]
    Mean elevated IOP during treatment. IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. IOP was recorded any time an elevation of IOP (increase of 5 mmHg or more) occurred while using study treatment. The median duration of treatment at the time of observed IOP elevation was 55 days.

Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
