In brief: Turns off faucet

Dorzolamide is a class of glaucoma drugs called carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.
The mechanism of action is stimulate a certain receptor in the eye that decreases the amount of eye fluid being made. This in turn helps to lower your eye pressure. This medicine is typically used to three times daily. All the best.
