METHODS Tissue culture plates (96-well) containing immortalized human corneal and conjunctival epithelial cells were divided into five groups. The test solutions examined were: timolol 0.5%+brimonidine 0.2%, containing 0.0050% benzalkonium chloride (BAK); timolol 0.5%+dorzolamide 2%, containing 0.0075% BAK; and… CONTINUE READING
