Eye drops lower the internal eye pressure by either decreasing fluid production or increasing fluid outflow through drainage. They must be appliedregularly and continuously. The effect of a medication only lasts a certain number of hours after which time the eye pressure may rise again, resulting in damage to the optic nerve. Therefore, a number of drops used at specific intervals will be required.
There are several types of drugs available in drop and tablet form for treating glaucoma.
