In Depth Information on Glucotim Eye Drop

Expert advice for Glucotim Eye Drop

  • Glucotim helps lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss.
  • Never miss a dose. If you do, take it as soon as you remember as missed doses can cause fluctuations in the eye pressure which may worsen your condition.
  • Notify your doctor if you have lung diseases such as asthma, or heart diseases (slow heart rate, high blood pressure) as Glucotim may worsen these conditions.
  • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after instilling the drop so that the medicine does not drain away from the eye.
  • When applying multiple eye medications, wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution. 
  • You may experience a stinging sensation for 1-2 mins after instilling eye drops. Notify your doctor if it persists for longer.
