Diurnal and Nocturnal Effect of Travatan With SofZia Preservative on Intraocular Pressure and Ocular Perfusion Pressure

The purpose of this research study is to determine the diurnal and nocturnal effects of Travoprost with SofZia (Travatan Z) on intraocular pressure and ocular perfusion pressure.
Condition or disease
Open Angle GlaucomaOcular Hypertension
The investigators hypothesize that Travatan Z will significantly lower intraocular pressure and increase ocular perfusion pressure during both the diurnal and nocturnal period, during a 24-hour evaluation, compared to baseline. The investigators further hypothesize that the medication effects will persist at 72 hours after discontinuation of the drug.
