The term “Glaucoma” is used to describe a number of diseases of the eye characterized by a particular form of
optic nerve damage that is often associated with high intraocular pressure (IOP). The open-angle glaucoma is the most
common form that is also referred to as chronic glaucoma. This is described as an optic neuropathy with multifactorial nature
in which there is a loss of characteristics of the optic nerve fibers. Therapeutic options for the treatment of this disease
are different, you can take advantage of eye drops, laser therapy and conventional surgery or more combined treatments.
Medicated eye drops are the most common way to treat glaucoma. Although eye drops are widely used, adverse reactions
are not frequently observed and described. In particular, the adverse skin reactions are not frequently described in the literature,
but often seen in dermatologic clinic, we reported their skin reactions and possible alternative treatments described
in literature and their patent applications.
Keywords: Beta-blockers, eye drop, glaucoma, high intraocular pressure, ocular disorders, skin reactions.
