OptiPranolol is a medicated eye drop approved for lowering eye pressure in people who have open angle glaucoma or high eye pressure. The medication, which is available by prescription only, is typically applied to the affected eye twice a day. Beta blocker medicines (such as this product) work to reduce eye pressure by decreasing the amount of fluid produced by the eye.
