Answer

Rho Kinase Inhibitors

These agents may increase aqueous outflow by reversing structural and functional damage at the trabecular meshwork. The vasodilatory effect of rho kinase inhibitors may also reduce episcleral venous pressure.

Netarsudil ophthalmic (Rhopressa)

May reduce intraocular pressure by increasing the outflow of aqueous humor through the trabecular meshwork route.
