In view of personal clinical observations, it appeared possible that a therapy with the carboanhydrase inhibitor acetazolamide leads to a reduction of tear production and induces a dry eye syndrome. Tear secretion was therefore measured by Schirmer tests in a control group of 66 patients after cataract surgery and in a test group of 20 patients who were treated with acetazolamide (Diamox, Glaupax) on the day after the cataract operation. The results were subjected to a statistical analysis with… 
The effect of antihypertensive therapy on dry eye disease
The use of antiHT drugs containing diuretic had no adverse effect on the tear function tests, but using drugs that contain ACE/ARB could have a positive impact.
Outcomes of phacoemulsification in patients with dry eye
Phacoemulsification was safe and led to minimal complications in patients with age‐related dry eye with or without associated systemic disorders, and the final visual outcomes were satisfactory.
Histochemical distribution of carbonic anhydrase in rat and rabbit lacrimal gland.
In rat, the presence ofCA activity in certain acinar cells and in ductal lumina suggests that CA is actively secreted by the lacrimal gland, and an age-related increase in the amount of CA activity in the male glands exists that may be under gender-specific hormonal influences.
