Elevated Intraocular Pressure (IOP) is the most important risk factor for the development of glaucoma, its reduction is achieved mostly by topical administration of anti-glaucoma drugs as eye drops. A major problem that reduces the clinical efficacy of these drugs is the attainment of an optimal drug concentration at the site of action. To achieve effective ocular hypotensive effect, an adequate amount of the drug should be delivered to the eye and maintained in the ocular tissues for a… Expand
