You keep asking the same question and the answer doesn't change.  Alphagan P is for lowering IOP only, not an antioxidant, it is sometimes used to keep the pupil from dilating fully at night after IOL or lasik surgery.

No further answers will be given.

I have never used it or heard about it for this purpose.  You can also use NASIsD eye drop.
