It is used to lower raised pressure in eye conditions such as ocular hypertension and glaucoma. Dorzolamide eye drops can used alone or in addition to other medicines such as beta-blockers which lower the pressure in the eye. Ocular hypertension is a condition where high amounts of pressure build up in the eye due to too much of fluid enters the eye without being drained.
