Gap between Anti-glaucoma Eye drops
UK (United Kingdom)
I need to arrange help for my relative to take her eye drops and seek advice on timing.
My newly widowed relative lives 100 miles away. She has Cosopt prescribed twice daily and Lumigan prescribed at bedtime. She has never managed to take the drops on her own and is not able or minded to learn now at 90 years.
Her late husband administered the drops at 9-10am, 4-5pm and 9-10pm.
A neighbour is currently doing this temporarily until we can set up carers. The neighbour finds the evening visit particularly disruptive and although it is clearly a social benefit I am not clear on the medical need.
We understand that there must be a gap between the Cosopt and the Lumigan; but how far apart does this need to be?
For example; could a carer come at 9am and 5pm and administer both Cosopt at 5pm and Lumigan at 5:10pm?
Would this make TV viewing difficult in the evening or is there any danger?
