Answer

Hemostatic agents

Reduce the incidence of rebleeds in the setting of hyphema.

Aminocaproic acid (Amicar)

Inhibits fibrinolysis via inhibition of plasminogen activator substances; to a lesser degree, through antiplasmin activity.

Main problem is that the thrombi that form during treatment are not lysed, and effectiveness is uncertain.
