Cosopt – generically known as Dorzolamide-Timolol – is a combination drug (composed of 2 drugs) that is used to treat glaucoma (open angle) and other diseases of the eye, such as hypertension. Ocular hypertension and glaucoma cause high pressure inside the eye, which can eventually lead to blindness. Cosopt works by reducing the amount of fluid in the eye; by lowering high pressure inside the eye, it can help prevent the most serious side effect of glaucoma and ocular hypertension: blindness.
What is Cosopt?
Composed of a topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitor and a topical beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agent, dorzolamide hydrochloride – timolol maleate is an effective treatment for ocular hypertension and open-angle glaucoma.
