Question:
I have glaucoma and am being treated with prostaglandin eyedrops after having had laser iridotomy in each eye. Can I continue being a platelet donor as I have been for the last few years?   

Answer:
I know of no problem with prostaglandin drops and platelet donation. You should, however, always notify the blood bank of all medications you are taking including drops.
