Eye drops

Hi - is it ok to be put on Lotemax 0.5 (3 times a day) and Iopodine 0.5 (3 times a day) and Timolol (twice a day).

I had iridotomies and was put on Maxidex but after a week my pressures were 58 so they took me off anf redone the iridotomies as they had closed and I am now on the above meds.

Will it be ok to continue Lotemax a steriod eye drop when Maxidex caused me a great problem with increased pressures or will the Iopodine and Timolol alongside the Lotemax reduce the pressures that Lotemax may cause.

I am seriously confused by this and am reluctanly continuing to take Lotemax for 3 weeks.

Thanks
Emma

This question can only be answered by your surgeon and you need to discuss.
