  2. Drugs for Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a condition that involves damage to the optic nerve, often caused by elevated intraocular pressure. Inadequate drainage of aqueous humor within the anterior chamber of the eye places stress on the optic nerve tissue. The resulting nerve damage leads to peripheral vision loss (tunnel vision) and, eventually, total blindness. Drug therapy has shown to be effective in delaying progressive vision loss by decreasing the production or improving the drainage of aqueous humor.

  3. Beta-adrenoceptor blocking drugs

    Beta blockers, also known as beta-adrenoceptor blocking agents, are pharmaceutical agents that act as competitive antagonists of the β-adrenoceptors, which are activated by the endogenous catecholamines epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), of the sympathetic nervous system.
