How Does the Drug Work?

Carteolol belongs to a group of drugs called beta-adrenergic blocking agents (known as beta blockers, for short). As the name implies, these medications block beta receptors in the body. Beta receptors are located in a number of places within the body, including the eyes. Carteolol lowers the eye pressure by decreasing the amount of fluid produced by the eye (known as aqueous humor).
