What is echothiophate iodide ophthalmic?

Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic reduces pressure in the eye by increasing the amount of fluid that drains from the eye. Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic also causes the pupil to become smaller and reduces its response to light or dark conditions.

Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic is used to treat glaucoma by lowering the pressure inside the eye. Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic is also used to treat certain eye disorders involving eye accommodation (focusing).

Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about echothiophate iodide ophthalmic?

Contact your doctor immediately if you notice any decrease in vision or an increase in "floaters" in your visual field. Rarely, echothiophate iodide ophthalmic may cause retinal detachment. Retinal detachment can lead to blind spots, floaters in your visual field, and even blindness. Your doctor will want to check your retina before you use this medicine to determine if you have an increased risk of retinal detachment.

Do not touch the dropper to any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye.

Apply light pressure to the inside corner of the eye (near the nose) after each drop to prevent the fluid from draining down the tear duct.

Use caution when driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous activities. Echothiophate iodide ophthalmic may cause decreased vision at night. If you experience decreased vision, avoid these activities.

What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using echothiophate iodide ophthalmic?

Rarely, echothiophate iodide ophthalmic may cause retinal detachment.
