Netarsudil is a rho-associated coiled-coil-containing protein kinase inhibitor and norepinephrine transporter inhibitor, which decreases the intra-ocular pressure by increasing the aqueous outflow and decreasing the aqueous production. However, netarsudil has been reported to cause adverse effects attributed to its vasodilator property. The common side effects associated with its use are conjunctival hyperemia, corneal verticillata, and conjunctival hemorrhages. This report describes a case of allergic contact dermatitis 3 months after initiating netarsudil eye drops in a 78-year-old man.
