Isopto Carpine (Pilocarpine hydrochloride) eye drops is a prescription ophthalmic solution used alone or with other medications to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma or other eye diseases such as ocular hypertension. Pilocarpine belongs to a class of drugs known as cholinergic agonists. This medication works by allowing excess fluid to drain from the eye. Isopto Carpine may also be used during certain eye surgeries to reverse the effects of drugs used to enlarge the pupil during an eye exam. You can help prevent blindness, vision loss and nerve damage by lowering high pressure inside the eye.
