Table of contents:

Simbrinza comes as Ophthalmic Suspension prescribed to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma or other eye diseases. It is a fixed combination indicated in the reduction of elevated intraocular pressure. By lowering high pressure in the eye, it can reduce the risk of vision loss, nerve damage, or blindness.

Simbrinza is a combination of two active ingredients, brinzolamide and brimonidine tartrate. Brinzolamide belongs to a class of drugs known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. Brimonidine belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha agonists. The combination works together to decrease the amount of fluid within the eye.
