COMBINATION BIMATOPROST-TIMOLOL VS. LATANOPROST IN PXG

This study aimed to compare the 24 hour intraocular pressure control obtained with bimatoprost-timolol fixed combination (Ganfort) vs. latanoprost in newly diagnosed, previously untreated patients with exfoliative glaucoma patients with baseline IOP greater than 29mmHg.  It concludes:

As first choice therapy in high-pressure, at-risk exfoliation patients, bimatoprost-timolol controlled mean 24 hour intraocular pressure significantly better than latanoprost monotherapy.
