Beta-adrenergic antagonists are generally considered to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) of both eyes after unilateral instillation. In order to determine whether timolol also lowers IOP in the contralateral eye and to what extent, pressure curves were established in 14 normal, young subjects. Eye pressure curves on both eyes of each subject were measured before and 1 week after timolol 0.5% instillation twice daily in one eye. All subjects had an IOP decrease in the treated eye, but no… CONTINUE READING
