This medication treats only bacterial eye infections. It will not work for other types of eye infections (such as infections caused by viruses, fungi, mycobacteria).
Generic Cosopt is used to treat certain types of glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye. Dorzolamide reduces the amount of fluid in the eye, which decreases pressure inside the eye. Timolol is a beta-blocker that also reduces pressure inside the eye.
Flarex is a glucocorticosteroid for topical application in the form of eye drops. Therapeutic efficacy is manifested in its anti-inflammatory, anti allergic and anti-exudative action, due to its vasoconstrictor effect.

People use melatonin to adjust the body's internal clock. It is used for jet lag, for adjusting sleep-wake cycles in people whose daily work schedule changes (shift-work disorder), and for helping blind people establish a day and night cycle. Melatonin is also used for the inability to fall asleep (insomnia); delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS); rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD); insomnia associated with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); insomnia due to certain high blood pressure medications called beta-blockers; and sleep problems in children with developmental disorders including autism, cerebral palsy, and intellectual disabilities. It is also used as a sleep aid after discontinuing the use of benzodiazepine drugs and to reduce the side effects of stopping smoking. Some people use melatonin for Alzheimer's disease or memory loss (dementia), bipolar disorder, a lung disease called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), insomnia caused by beta-blocker drugs, endometriosis, ringing in the ears, depression or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), mild mental impairment, nonalcoholic liver disease, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, an inflammatory disease called sarcoidosis, schizophrenia, migraine and other headaches, age-related vision loss, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bone loss (osteoporosis), a movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia (TD), acid reflux disease, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), exercise performance, infertility, epilepsy, aging, for menopause, metabolic syndrome, for recovery after surgery, agitation caused by anesthesia, stress, involuntary movement disorder (tardive dyskinesia), changes in heart rate when you move from laying down to sitting up (postural tachycardia syndrome), delirium, inability to control urination, jaw pain, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis), and for birth control. Daily nighttime melatonin reduces blood pressure in male patients with essential hypertension. Taking melatonin leads to an average reduction in total cholesterol.
Mydriacyl causes muscles in the eye to become relaxed. This dilates (widens) the pupil so that it does not react (narrow) when your doctor shines an examination light into your eye. Mydriacyl (for the eyes) is used to dilate the pupil for an eye examination or other diagnostic procedure.
Generic Optivar is used to treat itching eyes caused by allergies (allergic conjunctivitis). Azelastine belongs to a class of drugs known as antihistamines. It works by blocking certain natural substances called histamines that are responsible for allergic symptoms.
Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressant. Cyclosporine ophthalmic (for use in the eye) can increase tear production that has been reduced by inflammation in the eye(s). Cyclosporine ophthalmic is used to treat chronic dry eye that may be caused by inflammation.
Restasis® - ophthalmic emulsion containing 0.05% of cyclosporine, made by Allergan, which is indicated to increase tear production in patients whose tear production is presumed to be suppressed due to ocular inflammation associated with keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Increased tear production was not seen in patients currently taking topical anti-inflammatory drugs or using punctal plugs.
Tobradex ophthalmic is used to treat bacterial infections of the eyes. Tobramycin is an antibiotic. It is used to treat bacterial infections. Dexamethasone is a steroid. Dexamethasone ophthalmic is used to treat the swelling associated with bacterial infections of the eye.
Travoprost is a prostaglandin analog. It works to reduce pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye. Travoprost eye drops are used to treat open-angle glaucoma and other causes of high pressure inside the eye (ocular hypertension).
Xalacom - eye drops, related to combined antiglaucoma drugs. The drops contain 2 active components: timolol maleate, which reduces the accumulation of moisture, watery consistency in the ciliary epithelium and latanoprost, which reduces the intraocular pressure due to the acceleration of the outflow of water accumulated. The drops act already during the first hour after the beginning of their use and maximum efficiency develops after six-eight hours.
Xalacom® - an antiglaucoma combined drug with a miotic effect. Each ml of Xalacom® contains Latanoprost 50mcg and Timolol Maleate LP equivalent to timolol 5mg. These substances contribute to the effective reduction of increased intraocular pressure, due to two different mechanisms of action, which contributes to a better clinical effect in comparison with monotherapy.
Zovirax - ophthalmic ointment is used for the treatment of herpes simplex virus infections of the eye.
