Sol. 5% pilocarpine salts. (Modified from Meseguer G, Buri P, Plazonnet B, et al. Gamma scintigraphic comparison of eyedrops containing pilocarpine in healthy volunteers. ) 34 CHAPTER 2 Ophthalmic Drug Formulations properties on the surface of the eye. Ophthalmic products containing carbopol gels include Pilopine gel (carbopol 940), Vexol (carbomer 934P), Betoptic S (carbomer 934P), and Azopt (carbomer 974P). Cation Exchange Resin (Amberlite) Emulsions are biphasic lipid–water or water–lipid combinations that can dissolve and deliver both hydrophilic and lipophilic compounds.

Many drugs used to treat glaucoma decrease aqueous humor formation and thereby slow their own kinetics of removal and removal of other drugs by the aqueous route. In like manner, anti-inflammatory agents compensate for the increased permeability of the blood–aqueous barrier and help to bring it back within normal limits, thus altering the kinetics of drugs within the eye. , the inhibition of tear flow by systemically administered anticholinergic agents). Stability No complex drug molecule is indefinitely stable in solution.

PVP molecules can readily penetrate hydrophilic pores in membranes if they are small enough, and they are also taken up by pinocytotic vesicles. Apparently, PVP is not detectably bound to membrane surfaces and hence does not provide long-lasting viscosity enhancement beyond the normal residence time in the tears. The pKa of the conjugate acid (PVP . Therefore the ionic character of the PVP chain should not be appreciable at pharmaceutical or physiologic pH values. However, with ionic cosolutes, anions are bound much more readily than are cations by PVP.
