Details

Betaxolol Drops are the beta-blocker used alone or with the combination of other medications for lessening the high pressure inside the eye due to ocular hypertension and chronic open-angle glaucoma. It works by decreasing the fluid production and pressure inside the eye. Betaxolol also works to slow down the sympathetic stimulatory outcome to maintain sufficient cardiac function.

Mechanism of action of Betaxolol

Betaxolol works to block the beta receptors that are found on the ciliary body in the eye. As a result, it reduces the amount of aqueous humour secretion inside the eyeball by the ciliary body. It also blocks beta-receptors that are found resting on the blood vessels so as to deliver the ciliary body. This causes the narrowing of blood vessels, thereby reducing the quantity of watery fluid which filters from the blood vessels to form aqueous humour.
