Is it possible that succinylcholine drugs(nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Succinylcholine is known to increase intraocular minimally when given to secure the airway.
The increase is small and passing, therefore it has been used in patients with increased intraocular pressure.
