Caption

Glaucoma therapy, with pilocarpine. Close-up of the eye of a male patient, following pilocarpine treatment for acute glaucoma. The central pupil of the eye is constricted by this drug, to allow drainage and so reduce the pressure within the eye. Glaucoma is the condition in which pressure builds up inside the eye. It often affects only one eye. Warning signs are blurred vision or haloes around lights, particularly at night. Untreated, the condition may cause blindness. Together with polocarpine treatment, the drug acetazolamide may be used to reduce the formation of aqueous humour, the fluid inside the eye.
