We report a case of a patient who developed a severe case of follicular conjunctivitis from brinzolamide after 1.5 years of consistent use. This patient was rechallenged again after resolution of the follicles and subsequently redeveloped similar conjunctivitis. This is the first confirmed reported case of follicular conjunctivitis from brinzolamide use.
