How to use the Travatan eye drops?

I use Travatan Z and I can't always get the drops to come out of the bottle, I invert the bottle, and it either comes out before the bottle is over my eye or won't come out at all, no matter how much I squeeze. I am wasting too much of this very costly RX. Thank you.

The Travatan Z bottle is made such that the eyedrop does not come out before you press the bottle. Your statement is very unusual. You may want to consider the fact that you may me using a spurious medication / faulty botlle or that your eyedrop instillation technique is faulty.
I suggest that you take your eyedrop bottle to your glaucoma specialist and he / she will report it to the company.
You could also ask someone to instill the drop in your eye to see if the fault lies in the bottle or in your handling technique.
I am sure you will find a solution to the problem soon!
Good luck
