What Are Miotics, When Are They Used To Treat Glaucoma, And What Are The Risks/Benefits?

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

Answer: Miotics is another class of medication that can be used to treat glaucoma. Miotics have been on the market for a very long time, and so some of the side effects may be a brow ache. It also makes your pupil very small. But miotics work differently than the other classes of medications because it actually increases outflow and lowers the pressure. And once again, we know if we can lower the pressure, we can stabilize your glaucoma.
