Not ideal to use drops - however with increasing age pupils get smaller anyway.

Surely pupil restriction can't be a viable long term option, as it would restrict your night / dim light vision. Like Danny's says, seems like a cop out for a botched Laser procedure.

I tried these drops after around 5 months and things just were not getting any better, for a short while (30 mins) I thought that it was brilliant, I could see properly at night time, but after this 30 mins I suffered from blistering headaches, it's common with any kind of drops that alter pupil size apparently, I even tried pilacarpine (sp?) drops just over a years ago and these were even worse, they almost blinded me for 2 hours while they started working, it was horrible and left me unable to see anything while they were working.

I would steer clear of drops like these, long term use is not advised and really when you think about it glaucoma meds shouldn't be the answer to botched lasik.

Alphagan is a glaucoma drop that also partially constricts the pupil Pupil constriction decreases the effect of high order aberrations and can improve vision.

Following lens exchange to both eyes I was given Alphagan drops to use to see if it would help my blurred vision Has anyone else been given alphagan drops and if so what was it for?
