Drug Description


Timoptic is used to treat high intraocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma. The preservative-free formulation of Timoptic Ocudose is designed to minimize the potential irritation or toxicity that can be associated with preservatives commonly used in eye drops. It is beneficial for individuals who may be sensitive or allergic to preservatives commonly found in other eye drops. 

Timoptic Ocudose is a preservative-free ophthalmic solution containing the active ingredient timolol maleate. Timolol maleate works by reducing the production of fluid in the eye, which helps to lower intraocular pressure.  

Use and Dosage 

Timoptic Ocudose is intended for use in the eye(s) as directed by your doctor. Typically, one drop is applied to the affected eye(s) once or twice a day. If you are using other eye medications such as drops or ointments, wait for at least 10 minutes before applying them. Eye drops should be used before eye ointments to allow the drops to effectively enter the eye. 

Before applying the eye drops, ensure that you wash your hands thoroughly. To avoid contamination, refrain from touching the dropper tip and prevent it from coming into contact with your eye or any other surface. If you wear contact lenses, remove them before using the eye drops. Wait for at least 15 minutes after using. Tilt your head back, look upward, and gently pull down the lower eyelid to create a small pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the eye. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye near the nose and apply gentle pressure. Avoid blinking or rubbing your eye, as this will prevent the medication from draining out. If directed, repeat these steps for the other eye. 

Abruptly stopping Timoptic Ocudose can lead to an increase in intraocular pressure. If you need to discontinue the medication, your healthcare provider will provide guidance on how to gradually taper off the use of Timoptic Ocudose. 

If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as you remember. However, if it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to make up for a missed one.

  • Allergic Reactions: Some individuals may be allergic to timolol or other components of Timoptic Ocudose. Inform your healthcare provider if you have known allergies or have experienced allergic reactions to other medications. 
  • Cardiovascular Issues: Timolol can affect the cardiovascular system and may cause changes in heart rate, blood pressure, or other cardiovascular parameters. If you have a history of cardiovascular problems, such as heart disease or low blood pressure, discuss this with your healthcare provider before using Timoptic Ocudose. 
  • Respiratory Conditions: Timolol can potentially exacerbate respiratory conditions, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you have a history of respiratory conditions, inform your healthcare provider so they can determine if Timoptic Ocudose is suitable for you. 
  • Diabetes: Timolol can mask certain symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) in individuals with diabetes. 
  • Eye Conditions: Timoptic Ocudose is specifically indicated for the treatment of ocular hypertension and open-angle glaucoma. It may not be suitable for other eye conditions, such as narrow-angle glaucoma or certain types of ocular inflammation.  
  • Systemic Absorption: Although Timoptic Ocudose is an eye drop, a small amount of the medication can be absorbed into the bloodstream. This systemic absorption can potentially cause side effects or interact with other medications.  
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: The use of Timoptic Ocudose during pregnancy or breastfeeding should be discussed with a healthcare provider. They can assess the benefits and potential risks of using the medication in these situations. 
  • Eye Surgery: If you are scheduled for any eye surgery, including cataract surgery, inform your eye surgeon that you are using Timoptic Ocudose. The medication may have an impact on the surgery, or the medications used during the procedure. 
  • Systemic Beta-Blockers: Timolol, the active ingredient in Timoptic Ocudose, is a beta-blocker. If you are already taking other systemic beta-blockers, such as those used to treat heart conditions or high blood pressure, inform your healthcare provider. Combining multiple beta-blockers can lead to an increased risk of side effects.
