Cosopt

No Prescription

Although it often causes no symptoms at first, high pressure in the eye will eventually damage the optic nerve and lead to blindness.
Cosopt lowers high pressure in the eye, a problem typically caused by the condition known as open-angle glaucoma.
Cosopt works by reducing production of the liquid that fills the eyeball.
It's therefore very important to keep using this medicine even if your eyes seem okay.
