Latanoprost Timolol Eye Drops, 2.5ml

Latanoprost Timolol Eye Drops are a prescription medication used to treat elevated pressure in the eyes, also known as glaucoma. These eye drops work by reducing the amount of fluid that builds up in the eye, and they can help to prevent further vision loss. If you have been prescribed latanoprost timolol eye drops, be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully, and ask any questions you may have.

How do Latanoprost Timolol Eye Drops work?

Latanoprost belongs to a group of medicines known as prostaglandin analogues. It increases the natural outflow of fluid from the eye into the bloodstream.
Timolol belongs to a group of medicines known as beta-blockers. It slows down the production of the fluid in the eye.
These eye drops are used to reduce the pressure in your eye if you have conditions known as open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Both these conditions are linked to an increase in the pressure within your eye, eventually affecting your eyesight. Your doctor will usually prescribe you these eye drops when other medicines have not worked adequately
