10setsSanpilo ophthalmic solution 4% SANTEN 5mL×10 To Glaucoma, presbyopia, Pilocarpine Hydrochloride From Japan



It lowers intraocular pressure by promoting the outflow of aqueous humor. It is also used to treat angle-closure glaucoma, including open-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma. The goal of treating glaucoma is to keep the intraocular pressure low to protect the optic nerve and maintain vision and vision for a long time. Since it is not a causative drug, the treatment period will be long, but you must continue to instill it patiently in order to continuously control intraocular pressure.



This medicine acts on the muscle of parasympathetic innervation and contracts it in order to promote aqueous humor outflow to lower pressure in the eye, or in order to contract the pupil.
It is usually used to treat glaucoma, or to contract the pupil after the ophthalmic examination.


In recent years, the development of therapeutic agents that improve presbyopia has been progressing, and it is said that the first eye drops (pilocarpine) that improves presbyopia by administration once a day have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 



  • In general, apply 1 to 2 drops of 0.5 to 4% preparation at a time, 3 to 5 times a day. This medicine is 4% preparation. Strictly follow the instructions.
  • Before applying, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and running water. Pull down your lower eyelid lightly and apply the medicine.

Wipe off any excess liquid gently with clean gauze or a tissue. If you need to apply other eye drops at the same time, wait more than 5 minutes.
