Frequently asked questions about dorzolamide

What is dorzolamide?

Dorzolamide is a prescription medication used to treat glaucoma and hypertension of the eye (high pressure in the eye). Dorzolamide is commonly prescribed as an ophthalmic solution (eye drops), which helps to relieve pressure on the eyes caused by these two conditions.

What is dorzolamide used to treat?

Dorzolamide is used to treat pressure put upon the eye caused by glaucoma and hypertension of the eye. High pressure on the eye can lead to eye pain and vision loss. Dorzolamide helps to treat and prevent these complications by minimizing pressure on the eye.

Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes progressive damage to your optic nerve. This damage is usually the result of an abnormal amount of pressure inside of your eye and over time it can lead to vision loss or even blindness.

The most common type of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma. The only symptom associated with open-angle glaucoma is vision loss. Usually, this vision loss begins with peripheral vision. However, if it is caught early enough you may be able to prevent additional vision loss. This is why you must get yearly comprehensive eye examinations by an ophthalmologist, or eye specialist, to monitor any changes to your vision.

Ocular hypertension (high pressure on the eye) occurs when there is an excessive amount of pressure inside the eye. The optic nerve is not affected by ocular hypertension, nor do signs of glaucoma appear during vision testing. Ocular hypertension is most common in people over 40, people managing high blood pressure or diabetes, people who are very nearsighted, and people with a family history of ocular hypertension or glaucoma.

How does dorzolamide work?

Dorzolamide belongs to a classification of medication known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. These drugs work by suppressing the activity of the carbonic anhydrase enzyme. By blocking this enzyme’s mechanism of action, dorzolamide decreases the formation of liquid (known as aqueous humor) in the eye which puts pressure on the inner eye.

A decrease in pressure in the eye can help restore vision and reduces eye pain symptoms caused by ocular hypertension and glaucoma.

What are the common side effects of dorzolamide?

Dorzolamide has been shown to cause some side effects. Talk to your health care provider if these mild reactions do not go away within a few days.

Common side effects reported from ophthalmic dorzolamide use include:
- Irritation or discomfort in the eyes
- Bitter taste after using eye drops
- Upset stomach
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurred vision


This is not a complete list of adverse reactions caused by dorzolamide. Call your doctor right away if you experience any difficulty breathing, itching eyes, skin rash, or swelling of the eyes while taking this medication.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before taking dorzolamide. Dorzolamide can interact with other forms of medication, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with this medication.

What is the typical starting dose of dorzolamide?

Dorzolamide is commonly administered as an ophthalmic solution (eye drops). Before applying dorzolamide to the eyes, be sure to wash your hands to prevent harmful substances from getting in your eye or infecting your eyelid.

As a treatment for glaucoma and ocular hypertension, one drop of dorzolamide should be applied to the affected eye three times daily.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of dorzolamide without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
