Novartis Simbrinza UK 1%, 0.2% Eye Drops (5ml)
What is Simbrinza Eye Drop Used For?
Simbrinza Eye Drop is prescribed to adults with ocular hypertension (high intraocular pressure) or open-angle glaucoma to reduce intraocular pressure (pressure inside the eye). Simbrinza Eye Drop is used when other medications containing only an active ingredient have been tried but the intraocular pressure has not been sufficiently reduced. Simbrinza Eye Drop can be purchased at Drugstore Nigeria, an online pharmacy store in Lagos.
What is the Composition of Simbrinza Eye Drop?
Simbrinza Eye Drop contains Brinzolamide and Brimonidine tartrate as the active ingredients
How Does Simbrinza Eye Drop Work?
The active ingredients in Simbrinza are brinzolamide and brimonidine tartrate. These two components reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle glaucoma (GAA) and ocular hypertension (HTO) by reducing aqueous humour formation in the eye’s ciliary processes. Although both brinzolamide and brimonidine lower IOP by reducing aqueous humour formation, their mechanisms of action differ.
Brinzolamide works by inhibiting the enzyme carbonic anhydrase (AC-II) in the ciliary epithelium of the eye, which reduces bicarbonate ion formation and thus sodium and fluid transport through the ciliary epithelium. As a result, the formation of aqueous humour is reduced. Brimonidine, an alpha-2 adrenergic agonist, inhibits adenylate cyclase and inhibits cAMP-dependent aqueous humour production.
