Diagnosed with Ocular Hypertension or Glaucoma?

Trusopt Eye Drops is a prescription strength medication your doctor can prescribe to reduce the pressure in your eye and treat open-angle glaucoma. Each dose of preservative free Trusopt Eye Drops is individually packaged to treat both of your eyes, if needed. Intra-ocular pressure (IOP) can lead to glaucoma unless diagnosed and treated to lower the pressure in your eye.

Trusopt Eye Drops can also treat glaucoma and stop its progression, but it will not repair any damage already sustained before the diagnosis. You may also be prescribed other eye meds to be taken along with Trusopt Eye Drops to help reduce pressure and treat glaucoma.

How the Active Ingredient Dorzolamide HCl Works

When you are ready to instill Trusopt Eye Drops, remove one package and open the one-dose container. Tilt your head back slightly and gently lift out lower lid with your thumb and index finger to form a pocket and squeeze the tube to allow 1 drop out, repeat in other eye if required. Keep your eyes closed for 2 – 3 minutes as you apply light pressure to the inner corner of the treated eye to prevent the ingredients from draining into your nasal passage.

Once absorbed into the affected eye, Dorzolamide HCl will work as a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor to block the carbonic anhydrase. This is an enzyme that controls the secretion of fluid within your eyes. By blocking the carbonic anhydrase, fluid secretion is decreased and the IOP will drop. Your doctor can also prescribe a beta blocker that will work to reduce the amount of aqueous humor being produced that flows into your eyeball to also reduce the pressure in your eye(s).

Risk Factors for Ocular Hypertension and Open-Angle Glaucoma

Age plays a role in so many things that start to change in our bodies, including the pressure inside your eyes, but age is not the only risk factor. It could be due to a change in the aqueous humor production or drainage, certain drugs you may be taking, especially steroid meds, an eye injury, or another eye condition such as corneal arcus or pseudo exfoliation syndrome. These risk factors are basically the same as the ones listed for glaucoma. Regular eye exams are important if you want to keep your eyes healthy.

Before You Start Using Trusopt Eye Drops-Preservative Free

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding to be certain whether Trusopt Eye Drops is safe for your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss your medical history with the doctor and list any current OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Trusopt Eye Drops is the right medication for you.

Proper Use of Trusopt Eye Drops-Preservative Free

Remove any contact lenses before instilling Trusopt Eye Drops. You can reinsert them as indicated by your doctor and there is less risk of contact lens damage as this medicine is preservative free. If you are only treating 1 eye, use the individual dose of Trusopt and instill 1 drop and dispose the remaining drop as instructed. Without the preservative, Trusopt Eye Drops is not sterile once opened. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and do not share this drug with anyone else. Do not drive or attempt any activity that requires you to have proper vision following your treatment.
