Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
  • Retinal pathology (eg, retinal degeneration), anterior ischemic optic neuropathy, or vascular occlusion resulting in poor vision in the study eye.
  • Able to discontinue all intraocular-lowering (IOP) medications according to the minimum washout period, based upon the class of medication.
  • Mean washed out IOP ≥ 24 millimeters mercury (mmHg) to ≤ 36 mmHg at 8 AM in the study eye on two separate Eligibility Visits.
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Lens/corneal/vitreal opacity preventing adequate posterior segment visualization of the study eye.
  • Current or recent (within 30 days) use of any drug that may prolong the QT interval.
  • Poor vision resulting from advanced glaucoma in the study eye.
  • Intraocular surgery within the past 6 months in the study eye.
  • Ocular laser surgery within the past 3 months in the study eye.
  • Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
