Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Elevated Intraocular Pressure (IOP) During Treatment [ Time Frame: 55 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Mean elevated IOP during treatment. IOP is a measurement of the fluid pressure inside the eye. IOP was recorded any time an elevation of IOP (increase of 5 mmHg or more) occurred while using study treatment. The median duration of treatment at the time of observed IOP elevation was 55 days.
