Can using Cosopt drops for glaucoma accelerate the progression of Fuchs Dystrophy disease.

Possibly. "It appears that the drug can safely be used in eyes with normal corneas, where it had no significant effects on either corneal thickness or endothelial cell count after 1 year of therapy.However, application of dorzolamide can increase corneal thickness in patients with cornea guttata where the functional reserve of the endothelium is lower. What's more, the drug can cause irreversible damage".
