What Are Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors, When Are They Used To Treat Glaucoma, And What Are The Risks/Benefits?

Question: What are carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, when are they used to treat glaucoma, and what are the risks/benefits?

Answer: Another class of medication that can be used in combination with the other classes is carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. These types of medications decrease the amount of fluid being made by the eye and decrease the pressure. The only problem that we need to know about is whether or not someone is allergic to sulfa, and if they are we generally go to another class of medications.
