Mitosol Medication Information

Mitosol® (mitomycin ophthalmic) is a prescription drug used during glaucoma surgery to prevent new cell growth at the surgical site. This action helps prevent scarring on the hole that is cut during the eye surgery to help lower intraocular pressure.
 
This medication comes as a powder that is dissolved in sterile water to form a liquid. It is applied directly to the eye during surgery as a single, one-time dose. Side effects are possible and may include infections, inflammation, and low eye pressure.
 
Before using Mitosol, your healthcare provider will need information on your medical history and any other medications, vitamins, or supplements you are using. He or she will also ask if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, whether you have any allergies, or if you have had eye surgery in the past.
