Azopt Eye Drops and the generic alternative brinzolamide, are used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma or other eye diseases such as ocular hypertension. Both eye conditions are caused by high pressure in your eye and can lead to pain from pressure in your eye and then can eventually harm your vision. Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to prevent blindness.
Azopt Eye Drops work by decreasing the amount of fluid within the eye. This helps to lower high pressure inside the eye therefore helping to prevent blindness. This medication should be used regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.

Q: How should I apply Azopt Eye Drops?
A: Wash your hands first. Shake the bottle well before using. Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed.
