Ophthalmic medicines. Antiglaucoma drugs and miotic agents. β-adrenoreceptor antagonists
Timolol is a β1 and β2-adrenoreceptor antagonist. When instilled in the eye, it decreases the intraocular pressure, mainly due to reducing the production of intraocular fluid.
The medicine should be used in ocular hypertension, chronic open-angle glaucoma, some cases of secondary glaucoma.
The vial is tamper-proof. During the first use, it is necessary to twist the cap off, separating it from the protective ring.
The vial has a special configuration so that when pressed on the bottom, there is a metered release of the solution on the "one press — one drop" principle. The hardness of the vial walls significantly decreases the possibility of jet release, the most common reason for overdosing eye drops.
