 3  Glaucoma Works good except for occasional bad batches. I have been using Trusopt for a number of years and it does a good job in keeping the eye pressure down. But, I have just had what I call a bad batch. Eye pain when changing focus to near objects. Renewed prescription and everything back to normal. First time this happened about a year ago I wrote to Merck. They replied that their lab would investigate and a month later another letter from them said that they found nothing wrong with the drops.

 3  Open Angle Glaucoma Stinging shortly after putting the drops in. After initial stinging I have no other side effects and my eyes feel morre comfortable than with any other eye drops I have used. However I have not tried any of the beta blockers. Unfortunately the pressure is still too high and my consultant is suggesting ALT laser procedure. F 63 6 months

TRUSOPT  (DORZOLAMIDE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Dorzolamide is used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open angle-type) or other eye diseases (e.g., ocular hypertension). Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to prevent blindness. This medication works by decreasing the amount of fluid within the eye. It belongs to a class of drugs known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
