Mitomycin ophthalmic (Mitosol®) is a medication often prescribed during glaucoma surgery. It works by interfering with how DNA replicates, which can prevent new cell growth and scarring that would make the surgery unsuccessful.
Although most people tolerate it well, potential side effects include inflammation, infections, and low eye pressure. Mitomycin ophthalmic comes as a powder that is dissolved in sterile water and applied to the surgical site by your healthcare provider.
