Answer

Antiglaucoma, Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors

These agents lower IOP by decreasing aqueous production.

Dorzolamide (Trusopt)

Dorzolamide inhibits carbonic anhydrase in the ciliary processes, which decreases aqueous humor formation.

Brinzolamide 1% (Azopt)

Brinzolamide inhibits carbonic anhydrase in the ciliary processes, which decreases aqueous humor formation.
