This combined medication is employed for managing elevated intraocular pressure associated with conditions like open-angle glaucoma or other ocular diseases such as ocular hypertension. Reducing elevated intraocular pressure is crucial in preventing vision loss. Travoprost mimics a natural bodily substance, prostaglandin, and regulates the intraocular fluid flow to maintain normal pressure. Timolol, belonging to the beta-blocker class, functions by reducing the volume of fluid within the eye.

Uses and Dosage

Remove your contact lenses before applying this medication as it contains a preservative that may be absorbed by them. Wait at least 15 minutes after using the medication before reinserting your lenses.

Administer this medication to the affected eye(s), typically once daily in the morning or as per your doctor’s instructions. Avoid excessive use, as more frequent application does not enhance its efficacy.

If you’re using other eye medications, such as drops or ointments, wait at least 10 minutes before applying additional treatments. Prioritize the use of eye drops before eye ointments to facilitate the entry of the drops into the eye.

Consistently use this medication to derive maximum benefits. Adhere to a regular schedule, administering it at the same time each day.

Continue the use of travoprost/timolol even if you feel well, as individuals with glaucoma or elevated eye pressure often do not exhibit symptoms.

To administer the eye drops, the following steps should be followed:

  1. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch the eye or any other surface, and ensure that it is kept clean.
  3. Tilt the head back and pull down the lower lid of the eye using the index finger to form a pocket.
  4. Hold the dropper as close to the eye as possible without making contact, and brace the remaining fingers against the face.
  5. Squeeze the dropper gently to instill a single drop in the pocket created by the lower eyelid while looking upwards.
  6. Remove the index finger from the lower eyelid and keep the eye closed for 2-3 minutes while tilting the head down.
  7. Apply gentle pressure to the tear duct using a finger.
  8. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess liquid from the face.
  9. Wash hands to remove any residual medication.
