Trusopt eye drops (Dorzolamide) are primarily used to treat high intraocular pressure. This condition can be a result of diseases such as open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Dorzolamide is part of a class of drugs known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.

The medication works by lowering the high pressure inside the eye, which is a crucial step in preventing blindness.The mechanism of action involves decreasing the amount of fluid within the eye.
