Perceived Medication Volume Impacts Satisfaction in Patients with Glaucoma

Posted on May 19, 2020

Patients with glaucoma were more satisfied with their treatment when receiving the highest volume of medication, indicating a correlation between perceived medication volume and satisfaction, according to a poster presented at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) Virtual Annual Meeting.

Researchers surveyed 881 patients taking glaucoma eye drops and found that patients taking timolol, timolol/brimonidine, and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors reported receiving the highest volume of medication and were the most satisfied with their treatment. Patients prescribed latanoprost, timolol, and timolol/dorzolamide considered them to be the most cost effective.

The researchers noted that side effects only had a small impact on satisfaction.
