Trade name: Betagan. levodopa (L-dopa) n. a naturally occurring amino acid ( see dopa) used in the treatment of *parkinsonism. It is administered by mouth combined with benserazide in co-beneldopa (Madopar) or with carbidopa in co- careldopa (Caramet CR, Duodopa (given by enteral tube), Sinemet). These drugs prevent the breakdown of levodopa to dopamine outside the brain, which reduces the severity of sideeffects and enables lower doses of levodopa to be given.

Other eye drops used to treat glaucoma are beta- blockers, such as brand names Timoptic, Betoptic, OptiPranolol, Ocupress, Betagan, and Carteolol. These drugs lower pressure within the eye by blocking beta adrenergic receptors in the eye. When those receptors are blocked, not as much aqueous fluid is produced. The effectiveness and potentially serious side effects of these various beta-blockers vary, and each patient's case must be thoroughly evaluated before a decision on ...

Levobunolol (Betagan) is a newer agent with fewer systemic side effects. As symptoms worsen, stronger miotics and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (Diamox) can be used. Once goal intraocular pressure is attained, the ophthalmologist should examine the patient three times per year for routine follow-up. Surgery is reserved for cases where medical management fails . Closed angle glaucoma is less common, but early detection is necessary to avoid blindness.
