Marijuana Eyedrops Effectively
Relieves Symptoms Of Glaucoma
Marijuana eyedrops effective
ly relieve symptoms of glau
coma and are ready for tests
on people suffering from the
eye disease, researchers say.
But those taking the drops will
have to put up with a side
effect - "getting high."
A Medical College of Geor
gia researcher says animal
tests show liquid marijuana
“Is as good or better than any
currently available." Dr.
Keith Green, associate profes
sor of Ophthalmology, says
research emphasis was being
placed on substances related
to or derived from marijuana
"That hopefully won’t have
the euphoric side effects." He
said a new anti-glaucoma
drug would give patients a
valuable alternative treat
ment to the few drugs now
available for this purpose.
Major Cause of Blindness
Glaucoma is a condition in
which the fluids of the eye do
not drain properly, causing a
buildup of pressure within the
eyeball. This pressure can
damage the optic nerve and
distort the structures of the
eye, leading to loss of vision.
The condition is the tmrd
leading cause of blindness in
the U.S. and effects an esti
mated two million persons. If
detected early, drug treat
ment can slow down or arrest
glaucoma. But if this fails,
frequently surgery is the final
outcome. Dr. Green saijLhe ■
became interested in mari
juana as a possible glaucoma
drug in 1971 after a report by
researchers at the Jules Stein
Eye Institute in Los Angeles.
That study found that volun
teers who smoked marijuana
showed a drop in pressure
w’ithin the eye.
Green found that a single
drop of marijuana's most ac
tive ingredient, called THC,
dropped eye pressure in rab
bits for five hours. The rabbits
also got a marijuana “high".
