What is Timolol?

Timolol ophthalmic is used to treat open-angle glaucoma and glaucoma caused by another disease of the eye (secondary glaucoma). Timolol Ophthalmic Solution requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:
  • Relieves pressure in your pet's eye
  • Dropper bottle for ease of administration
How it Works:

Timolol is a beta-blocker which acts on receptors in the blood vessels in the eye causing them to constrict. This reduces the amount of fluid (aqueous humor) that passes out of the blood vessels into the eyeball. Timolol also blocks the area of the eye that actively produces aqueous humor.

Cautions:

The dropper opening is sterile, so don't touch it to any surface, including eyes or hands. If it becomes contaminated, it may cause an infection in the eye.

Brand Name:

Timoptic (Merck)

Generic Name:

Timolol ophthalmic

What is timolol ophthalmic:

Timolol ophthalmic is a beta-blocker used to reduce pressure inside the eye. Timolol ophthalmic is used to treat open-angle glaucoma and other causes of high blood pressure inside the eye. Timolol ophthalmic may be used for other purposes than those listed in this guide.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before using timolol ophthalmic on my pet:

Do not use this medication if your pet is allergic to timolol (Blocadren, Betimol, Isatol, Timoptic), or if your pet has asthma or severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart conditions such as AV block, or severe or uncontrolled congestive heart failure. Before using this medication, tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to any medications or if your pet has a history of; breathing problems, heart disease or congestive heart failure, diabetes, circulation problems, thyroid disorder, kidney disease or liver disease.

Timolol ophthalmic is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice to use this medication in dogs and cats. Consult your veterinarian for the directions for use. Do not allow the dropper tip to touch any surface, including the eyes or hands. The dropper opening is sterile. If it becomes contaminated, it could cause an infection in the eye. Do not use any other eye medication on your pet unless the veterinarian has to told you to do so. If your veterinarian tells you to use another eye drop, use it at least 10 minutes before or after using timolol ophthalmic. Do not use other eye drops at the same time. Timolol ophthalmic can cause blurred vision.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while using timolol ophthalmic:

Timolol ophthalmic may cause blurred vision. Do not use any other eye medication on your pet unless the veterinarian has to told you to do so. If your veterinarian tells you to use another eye drop, use it at least 10 minutes before or after using timolol ophthalmic. Do not use other eye drops at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from molly has been doing great on this medication . She had an eye removed last April because of glaucoma. this medication is saving her other eye.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My husband and I have a Cocker Spaniel that was diagnosed with Glaucoma a few years ago. The vet put him on these drops, once per day in each eye. Since we've been using these drops, my dog has not had any issues in his eyes. He knows that he gets treats when he lets me do his drops, so I don't have to fight with him every day. I think this is a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product / Shipping not great My dog Lilly has been using this product for several years due to her cataracts causing swelling. It works good but often I have to put drops in 3 to 4 times a day which can get difficult during the work week. However, these drops are cheaper than the alternative so overall I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Bichon-poodle developed cataracts at the age of two. One eye was operated on; the cataract in the other eye had already resorbed and the eye has since been removed. Babs is now six and the vet specialist has prescribed 1 drop of Timolol three times a day to keep the pressure down. It seems to be working, and she is having no problems. However, after reading the other review about a dog receiving only one drop a day I wonder whether our Babs is "over-medicated". I will ask that question of the vet during the next check-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for Maggie After Maggie's surgery for cataracts 1 and 1/2 years ago, her surgeon has gradually reduced the use of Timolol to 1 drop in each eye every night. Within 1 month she had gone almost blind from diabetes and cataracts. She is now almost 11 and doing beautifully.

What is the difference between dorzol / timolol and timolol alone?

Asked by: Harrison
The DORZOLAMIDE/TIMOLOL combination is used when two medications are needed to reduce pressure in the eye from glaucoma when the one agent one it's own ( example just TIMOLOL ) is not effective

Is this the same as Latanoprost (Xalatan) ophthalmic?

Asked by: Deb
NO! Xalatan is a much more powerful (therefore more expensive.) Timolol SHOULD NOT be used as a replacement!

If my cat normally gets 2 drops of a .25% solution, how many drops would he take of the .5% solution?

Asked by: veggirl
You should not increase to the 0.5% without speaking to your veterinary ophthalmologist. Timolol can rarely cause heart problems, but in smaller patients such as cats they should be monitored closely.

if my dog gets one drop of timolol one to two times a day of .25% then how many drops of .5% can i give her? can i give them to her?

Asked by: cash's mommy
Give it twice a day still as prescribed. Timolol is relatively weak in comparison to most glaucoma medications, so you will do no harm by continuing on a twice daily schedule.

In an abundance of caution I would suggest you contact your veterinarian to advise him/her of what happened. Your veterinarian may or may not want to examine your pet.
