Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean change from baseline in intraocular pressure (IOP) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Up to Week 4 ]
    IOP (fluid pressure inside the eye) was measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry. A higher IOP can be a greater risk for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage). A more negative change indicates a greater amount of improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean intraocular pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline, Up to Week 4 ]
    IOP (fluid pressure inside the eye) was measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry. A higher IOP can be a greater risk for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage).

  2. Mean percent change from baseline in IOP [ Time Frame: Baseline, Up to Week 4 ]
    IOP (fluid pressure inside the eye) was measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry. A higher IOP can be a greater risk for developing glaucoma or glaucoma progression (leading to optic nerve damage). A more negative percent change indicates a greater amount of improvement.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Satisfy all informed consent requirements;
  • Diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension;
  • Able to discontinue use of all IOP-lowering medications for a minimum of 5 to 28 days prior to the Eligibility 1 Visit;
