I'm not sure that it actually decreases desire. But I do know that it can affect a man's ability to get an erection. It takes blood pressure for that to happen and if his blood pressure is low then his ability to get an erection is hampered. So he may want to but not be able to. That's why they invented Viagra. ^~^

I've just been diagnosed of having glaucoma in both eyes about 2 weeks' ago. I'm female, 59 years, ethnic Chinese, from Malayisa. No family history of it, nor blood pressure, nor diabetes. Generally very healthy. I'm a midwife, retired from working in the UK until 3 years ago. Why suddenly glaucoma? I went to see my hospital optomologist when I saw an increase of 'floaters' in the vision of my left eye and that was when he said I had the glaucoma. I've been prescribed Timolol 0.5% b.d. My next appointment for follow up is in 3 months' time. Isn't that a little long for an initial follow-up? Can you advise? Thank you. Miss Chin

I have glaucoma and have been using Lumigan for 2years.
I had bilateral cataract surgery in January with a lot of inflammation(maybe due to the pseudoexfoliation I have)
I had to use steroid drops for 3 months. I now have very itchy, sore eyes
Should I think about asking for a different med to control my eye pressure?
