About TIMOLET OD EYE DROPS 5ML

TIMOLET OD EYE DROPS 5ML belongs to a class of anti-hypertensive drugs called 'beta-blockers' primarily used to treat increased pressure in the eye in conditions of glaucoma (damage of optic nerve) and ocular hypertension (high fluid pressure inside the eye). Glaucoma is an eye condition which causes damage to the optic nerve (essential for good vision) due to abnormally increased pressure in the eye. Ocular hypertension is increased pressure in the eye due to poor drainage of aqueous humour (fluid in the eye that maintains normal pressure by its continuous flow).

TIMOLET OD EYE DROPS 5ML works by decreasing the secretion of aqueous humour (a liquid that maintains normal pressure in the eyeball) by the ciliary body into the eyeball. Thereby lowers the pressure in the eye by reducing aqueous humour entry into the eyeball.

Apply one drop of TIMOLET OD EYE DROPS 5ML in the morning and one drop in the evening in the affected eye. Your doctor will advise you how many drops to instil based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience redness, itching, stinging or burning in the eyes, swelling of the eyelid and dry eyes. Most of these side effects of TIMOLET OD EYE DROPS 5ML do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects worsen or persist, please consult your doctor.
