INTRODUCTION

RAIKI EYE DROPS contains Netarsudil which belongs to the group of medicines known as Rho Kinase Inhibitor. RAIKI EYE DROPS is indicated for reduction of elevated intraocular pressure in adult patients with primary open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.

Primary open angle glaucoma is a type of glaucoma which develops over the period of time due to clogging of drainage channels of the eye. Glaucoma is an irreversible and progressive condition in which optic nerve gets damaged due to several reasons such as increased pressure caused by fluid build-up in front region of eye. Ocular hypertension can be defined as high intraocular (inside the eye) pressure due to disturbance in balance between production and outflow of aqueous humour (fluid inside the eye).

Inform your doctor before using RAIKI EYE DROPS if you have trauma to eye, planned eye surgery, dry eyes, concurrent eye disease or if you have ocular epithelial surface disruption as risk of bacterial keratitis (bacterial infection of outer layer of eye) is increased in such cases.

RAIKI EYE DROPS is not recommended for use in pregnant women unless clearly necessary. Consult your doctor before using. RAIKI EYE DROPS should be used with caution in breast feeding women. Consult your doctor before using.

RAIKI EYE DROPS is not recommended for use in children and adolescents below 18 years of age. Consult your doctor before using.

If you wear contact lenses, it should be removed prior to instillation of this medicine and can be reinserted 15 minutes following its administration.

RAIKI EYE DROPS may cause some side effects such as conjunctival hyperaemia (dilation of vessels of conjunctiva due to inflammation), corneal verticillate (condition in which corneal deposits form faint golden-brown whorl pattern), conjunctival haemorrhage, instillation site pain and erythema. Consult your doctor immediately in case any of the above side effects worsens.

USES OF RAIKI EYE DROPS

  • Used to reduce elevated intraocular pressure in adult patients with primary open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension

HOW RAIKI EYE DROPS WORKS

RAIKI EYE DROPS is a rho kinase inhibitor, works by reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing the outflow of aqueous humour (transparent fluid in eye which is important for maintaining pressure inside eye and nourishment of our natural lens) through relaxation of trabecular meshwork.
