Cosopt is an efficient ophthalmic preparation that is used to treat high intraocular pressure. Cosopt eye drops are also extensively employed in the treatment of different types of glaucoma due to its ability to lower the intraocular pressure in the eyes. There are two main functional constituents namely Timolol and Dorzolamide, which will effectively cure your high intraocular pressure.
Cosopt eye drops contain Dorzolamide and Timolol as the main active constituent. Dorzolamide and Timolol act in a similar fashion by decreasing the intraocular pressure in the eye by enhancing the production of aqueous humor from the tubercular canal present in the eye. This results in a decrease in intraocular pressure and successful treatment of Cosopt eye drops.
Cosopt eye drops are commercially available as a 5ml solution. To treat your increased intraocular pressure put a single drop of Cosopt eye drops into the eye pocket. Now close your eye for 5 minutes. Repeat the same procedure in the other eye as well.
The commonly occurring side effects of Cosopt eye drops are a bitter taste in the mouth, burning and stinging sensation in the eye, feeling of having something in your eyes and blurring of vision.
