About DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML

 

DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML belongs to a class of eye-related medicine called 'antiglaucoma' used to treat increased pressure in the eye. It helps to prevent the gradual loss of vision or eyesight by lowering the increased pressure in the eyes.  Glaucoma is an eye problem in which the optic nerve is damaged, thereby leading to increased eye pressure and if left untreated it can lead to permanent blindness.

DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML contains Dorzolamide, a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor that works by reducing the production of aqueous humor (fluid in the eye) and reducing eye pressure. As, the increased pressure can lead to a disease called glaucoma. If the pressure is too high, it can also lead to loss of sight. DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML should be put only in the infected eye, and contact with the normal eye should be avoided.

DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML is for external use only. Before using it, break the seal and wash your hands to avoid any infection.

Most of these side effects of DORTAS EYE DROPS 5ML are temporary, do not require medical attention, and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
