What are the side effects of glaucoma medication? I have been prescribed eye drops for my glaucoma. Will any parts of my body other than my eyes be affected? Are there any negative side effects?

In brief: In

In most cases glaucoma medications do not have negative effects on other parts of the body.
It is difficult to give a more specific answer without knowing which glaucoma eyedrop you are using.

In brief: Depends..

There are 5-6 glaucoma medications, and all of them can cause side effects, but not commonly.
Everyone is different as well. Your eye doctor can explain this to you in detail.
