Travatan Z

This is a glaucoma drop used to lower eye pressure. It is actually the same medicine as regular Travatan (travoprost).  However, the manufacturer changed the preservative from BAK to a gentler preservative in an attempt to make the drop less harsh on the corneal surface. Like all prostaglandin glaucoma drops, it is dosed once a day (usually at bedtime).
