    Expert advice for Timolol

    • Timolol helps lower high pressure in the eye and reduces the risk of vision loss.
    • Apply pressure on the corner of the eye (close to the nose) for about 1 minute, immediately after instilling the drop.
    • Wait for at least 5-10 minutes before delivering the next medication in the same eye to avoid dilution.
    • Notify your doctor if you have lung or heart diseases as Timolol may worsen these conditions.
    • Stinging sensation may occur for 1-2 mins. Notify your doctor if it persists for longer.
    • Make sure to use within 4 weeks of opening the bottle.
