PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the LipiFlow System compared to the iHeat Warm Compress (WC) for adults with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD). METHODS This was a non-significant risk, prospective, open-label, randomized, crossover multicenter clinical trial. One hundred thirty-nine subjects were randomized between LipiFlow (n=69) and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy and safety of a fixed combination of 0.2% brimonidine tartrate and 0.5% timolol maleate (fixed brimonidine-timolol) compared with the component medications. METHODS In 2 identical, 12-month, randomized, double-masked multicenter trials, patients with ocular hypertension or glaucoma(More)
BACKGROUND Prostaglandin analogues are effective ocular hypotensive agents and are being used increasingly in the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). These agents are typically dosed once daily. OBJECTIVES A pilot study was conducted to evaluate the duration of travoprost's IOP-lowering efficacy up to 84 hours after the final dose in(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and safety of a fixed combination of 0.005% latanoprost and 0.5% timolol maleate administered once daily vs monotherapy with either 0.005% latanoprost once daily or 0.5% timolol twice daily. METHODS Patients with either primary or secondary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension participated in a 6-month, randomized,(More)
PURPOSE To compare the duration of action of travoprost ophthalmic solution 0.004% (Travatan Z) formulated without benzalkonium chloride (BAK) to travoprost ophthalmic solution 0.004% formulated with BAK (Travatan). METHODS This was a prospective, randomized, double-masked study. Patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension were randomized to(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect on serum lipid levels of carteolol hydrochloride 1.0% or timolol maleate 0.5% given twice a day to women age 60 years and older with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. METHOD We included 112 patients in this double-masked, randomized, multicenter trial. Fasting clinical laboratory studies were evaluated at(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether a fixed combination of 2% dorzolamide and 0.5% timolol given twice daily showed equivalent efficacy to the concomitant administration of 2% dorzolamide given three times daily and 0.5% timolol given twice daily in patients whose intraocular pressure (IOP) remained elevated during monotherapy with 0.5% timolol twice daily.

PURPOSE To compare the efficacy and safety of once-daily (QD) bimatoprost, latanoprost, and timolol gel-forming solution in providing 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) control. DESIGN This was a randomized, multicenter, investigator-masked, prospective, parallel-group, clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether a fixed combination of 2% dorzolamide and 0.5% timolol given twice daily showed equivalent efficacy to the concomitant administration of 2% dorzolamide given three times daily and 0.5% timolol given twice daily in patients whose intraocular pressure (IOP) remained elevated during monotherapy with 0.5% timolol twice daily.

PURPOSE To compare the safety and efficacy of bimatoprost and latanoprost in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. METHODS This was a 30-day, multicenter, double-masked, randomized, clinical trial. Patients (n = 64) diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension were randomly assigned to receive bimatoprost(More)
