Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Dorzolamide has not been studied in patients with severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance <30 ml / min) or in patients with hyperchloremic acidosis. Since dorzolamide and its metabolites are mainly excreted by the kidney, dorzolamide is therefore contraindicated in these patients.
