ABSTRACT: Purpose: In order to clarify the cost-effectiveness of various ophthalmic solutions used in glaucoma treatment, we compared the daily cost of intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction of 1 mmHg in glaucoma patients. Methods: The daily costs of ophthalmic solutions were calculated by the total number of drops per bottle and the price of the drug. Data pertaining to the change in IOP before vs. after treatment was obtained from the literature. The IOP reduction achieved by each ophthalmic solution was normalized to the reduction achieved by 0.5% timolol maleate. We applied these values to a model patient with baseline IOP of 24 mmHg who showed a 20% reduction (4.8 mmHg) after treatment with 0.5% timolol maleate. Results: The daily cost of IOP reduction of 1 mmHg ranged from 6.7 to 17.0 yen (mean, 11.1 yen), which represents a maximum difference of 2.5-fold. Conclusions: The daily cost of reducing IOP by 1 mmHg differed greatly among ophthalmic solutions. This approach to evaluating the pharmacoeconomics of glaucoma treatment should become part of routine patient management.Journal of Pharmaceutical Research and health Care 09/2014; 40(12):500-506.
