Description

Pilocarpine is a miotic agent (one that causes constriction of the pupil of the eye) used to treat canine primary glaucoma. It can also be used before or after eye surgery. 

How it works

Pilocarpine reduces pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that can drain from the eye. 

Dosage & Administration

Use pilocarpine ophthalmic exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand these directions, ask your veterinarian or pharmacist to explain them to you. Wash your hands before using the eye drops. Do not touch the dropper tip to any surface, including the skin or eye. The dropper tip is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Do not use the eye drop that is discolored or has particles in it. Store pilocarpine ophthalmic at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle properly capped. Discard any unused medication on the expiration date.
