Combigan is ophthalmic solution that can be prescribed to treat high pressure inside the eye in cases of glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Combigan contains Brimonidine an alpha agonist that allows eye fluid to flow easier, and the beta blocker Timolol to help reduce eye fluid. Both of these generic medications work together to reduce pressure in the eye.
