How Does It Work:
Timolol, a nonselective beta-adrenergic blocker, is used to treat elevated intraocular pressure in ocular hypertension and open angle glaucoma. An eye drop solution of timolol, a nonselective beta-adrenergic antagonist, is proven to reduce intraocular pressure or eye pressure.
Applications. Or Where It Is Used:
Beta-blocking medication Timolol also reduces pressure inside the eye. A ophthalmic drug (for the eyes) that contains timolol treats open-angle glaucoma as well as causes of high eye pressure.
For the creation of new formulations with greater efficacy, carboprolol and preservatives are required. We evaluated timolol 0.5% gel formulation using a process on normal and glaucomatous eyes. The reduction in I.O.P. is found to be around 15% more than found with drops in individuals.
How To Use:
One drop should be placed in the eye pouch, preferably in the morning or twice daily, as directed by your doctor. Place your finger at the corner of your eye (near your nose), looking downward. Before you open your eyes, press gently for one to two minutes.
Dosage Of Usage:
If you miss a dose of this medication on a regular schedule, use it as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if the next dose is close. Take the next dose when it is normal to do so. Don't double the dose if you want to catch up.
