INTRODUCTION

TIMOSIGHT contains Timolol which belongs to the group of medicines called beta-blockers. It is used to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is a type of eye condition characterized by increased intra-ocular pressure which damages your optic nerve. As a result, it causes eye pain, visual disturbances, peripheral loss of vision or even complete blindness.

Timolol acts by reducing the increased pressure in your eyes by decreasing the production of aqueous humor. TIMOSIGHT is meant for ophthalmic use only. While applying this medicine, avoid wearing soft contact lenses because the preservatives present in the medicine can be deposited on the lenses. It is important to remove your lenses before using this medicine and not to put it back into your eyes for at least 15 minutes. In order to avoid any possible contamination of the container, try to keep the tip of the container away from contact with any surface.

The most common side effects of using this medicine are eye irritation, pain or redness, inflammation of eyelids or blurred vision. Contact your doctor if these symptom bothers you. Before using this medicine, inform your doctor if you have any heart or lung disease. Do not use TIMOSIGHT if you are pregnant or breastfeeding without consulting your doctor. This medicine should be used with extreme caution in newborns, infants and in children or adolescents. Careful monitoring for any abnormal breathing patterns is required in such patients.

USES OF TIMOSIGHT

  • Treat glaucoma

HOW TIMOSIGHT WORKS

Timolol is a beta-adrenergic antagonist. It inhibits the beta-adrenergic receptors present in the ciliary body of the eyes, leading to decreased production of aqueous humor and, therefore, decreases intraocular pressure.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Use TIMOSIGHT as directed by your physician. It is for ophthalmic use only. Wash your hands thoroughly before application. Tilt your head back and gently pull your lower eyelid. Place one or two drops of this medicine in the lower eyelid and close your eyes for 2 minutes. Repeat the process for the other eye if required. Close the bottle and wash your hands after application.

Do not touch the tip of the container with your eyes, eyelids or fingers. In order to avoid any possible contamination of the container, try to keep the tip of the container away from contact with any surface. Your doctor will decide the number of doses, number of drops and duration of the therapy for you depending upon your age, body weight and health condition. Continue to use this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
