Medication Summary

Currently, no medications are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of pediatric glaucoma. Medications, such as miotics, topical beta-blockers, and topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, have been tried; however, these medications must be prescribed only after a full discussion of their risks and benefits with the parents. The doses are not discussed here since the medications are not approved by the FDA.
