Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Average Intraocular Pressure (IOP) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 ]
    IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. For each patient, the IOP is the average of the two eyes. The average IOP is the average of the 08:00, 12:00 and 16:00 hour time points at each visit for each patient. A negative number change from Baseline indicates a reduction in average IOP (improvement).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline IOP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 ]
    IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. For each patient, the IOP is the average of the two eyes. IOP is recorded at the 08:00 (8:00 am), 12:00 (noon) and 16:00 (4:00 pm) hour time points for each patient at each visit. A negative number change from Baseline indicates a reduction in IOP (improvement).

  • Percentage of Patients Reaching a Predefined Target Pressure Threshold [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 ]
    IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. For each patient, the IOP is the average of the two eyes. The predefined target pressure thresholds are at least a 20%, 30%, 40%, and 50% reduction in IOP from baseline.

  • Absolute Difference Between Patient's Highest IOP Reading at Baseline (Day 0) and the Corresponding IOP Reading [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 ]
    IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. Two or three measurements of IOP are taken for each eye at each time point. The highest IOP values between the two eyes for each patient at each time point are used to calculate the absolute difference.

  • Absolute Difference Between Patient's Lowest IOP Reading at Baseline (Day 0) and the Corresponding IOP Reading [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 ]
    IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. Two or three measurements of IOP are taken for each eye at each time point. The lowest IOP values between the two eyes for each patient at each time point are used to calculate the absolute difference.
