How does Rhopressa work?

Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 22 Jan 2018

Rhopressa (netarsudil ophthalmic solution) 0.02%, from Aerie Pharmaceuticals, is a Rho Kinase Inhibitor. Rhopressa is believed to work by reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing outflow of aqueous humor (the fluid inside the eye) through the trabecular meshwork, the main fluid drain of the eye. Rhopressa, a once daily eye drop for lowering IOP in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension, was FDA-approved in December 2017.
