Not here: Even if it were it would not work but only on the eye and not have the same effects as the tablets

Depends: Acetzolamide is available as an eyedrop, usually paired with timolol and often dorzamide is used instead of acetzolamide. These are used for glaucoma and there is little systemic effect.

I have to agree if acetazolamide is being used for glaucoma then eye drops will be the best option.
