Compare Vyzulta and Rhopressa to Other Glaucoma Meds
New Rx Vyzulta (latanoprostene bunod) and Rhopressa (netarsudil) will lead to questions about how meds for open-angle glaucoma compare.
Patients often get one glaucoma med to start...then switch or add meds from other classes until intraocular pressure is controlled. Meds lower pressure by increasing fluid outflow or decreasing fluid production.
Prostaglandins (latanoprost, etc) are often used first. They're effective, used once daily, and rarely have systemic effects.
