Azopt Eye Drops Interactions and Uses
Chemical Name BRINZOLAMIDE (brin-ZOH-la-mide)
Azopt eye drops (Brinzolamide)
Azopt generic belongs to the class of medications called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. It is widely available as eye drops. The main function of Azopt eye drops is to reduce the high pressure inside the eye for people due to glaucoma. Fluid is constantly being produced and secreted out of the eye. When this fluid is not removed out of the eye properly, or too much fluid is produced, the pressure inside the eye tends to increase. Brinzolamide works by reducing the amount of fluid produced by the eye.
