Azopt Eye Drops 1% 5mL
Azopt Eye Drops 1% 5mL is a leading product in the fight against glaucoma and other ocular diseases. It is used, either alone or in combination with other eye drops, to reduce pressure in the eye äóñ specifically to treat ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. Included in the class of drugs known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, Azopt Eye Drops works by decreasing the amount of fluid in the eye to relieve pressure.
Our eyes are constantly forming and draining fluid. When there is an imbalance of fluid, either from too much fluid production or from fluid not draining from the eye properly, pressure inside the eye increases. Azopt Eye Drops work by reducing the amount of fluid the eye produces.
