|Drug Class: What is Trusopt and why is Trusopt prescribed?|
Generic Trusopt (Dorzolamide) helps to reduce pressure in the eye for patients with increased pressure or open-angle glaucoma.

Generic Trusopt is used to treat disorders where there is an increased build up of pressure within the eye, such as glaucoma.
The eye has two fluid filled spaces, and if too much fluid is produced (or not enough is allowed to drain away) this can lead to an increase in pressure (intraocular pressure - IOP) within the eye. Such increases in pressure can damage the eye leading to loss of sight.
