Dorzolamide-induced relaxation of intraocular porcine ciliary arteries in vitro depends on nitric oxide and the vascular endothelium.


PURPOSE Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (CAIs) are used to reduce aqueous production in glaucoma, which includes a direct effect on the ciliary body. However, CAIs also affect ciliary blood flow, but the mechanisms of action of CAIs on the tone of intraocular ciliary arteries supplying the ciliary body have not been studied in detail.
