    If you get high eye pressure, you can ask your doctor to prescible you some eye drops to help lower the eye pressure. In fact, there are many different kinds of eye drops that can be used to lower eye pressure. Some kinds of eye drops, such as epinephrine, prostaglandin-like compounds, and cholinergic eyedrops can be used to lower eye pressure by draining the fluid out of eyes. And eye drops including beta-blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitors and alpha-agonists can be used to lower eye pressure by prevent the amount of fluid production.

    Clonidine Hydrochloride Eye Drops is suitable for your condition. You have to drop it three times per day. It can be absorbed perfectly so that the eye pressure becomes low after 30 minutes. It can get to the peak in 1 to 2 hours, which can be lasted about 4 to 8 hours. However, it could cause thirsty, headache, nausea, the worst side effect is making your blood pressure lower. Hence, it is more helpful for glaucoma within high blood pressure, instead of glaucoma within low blood pressure.
