Can Glaucoma be Treated With Cosopt Loaded Contact Lenses?

August 10, 2016

The University of Florida has announced a study to determine whether drug eluting contact lenses can be used to treat glaucoma.

The contact lens will be loaded with Cosopt (i.e., timolol maleate and dorzolamide hydrochloride), as well as vitamin E ((+) ?-tocopherol) as an additive for achieving extended release of the drugs.

Effectiveness will be measured as a drop in IOP after using the lenses.
