Timoptic XE is an ophthalmic gel forming solution used to reduce pressure inside the eye in cases of glaucoma or other eye diseases. Timolol can decreases the pressure in the eye by reducing the amount of eye fluid.
Before administering eye drops take care to wash your hands to avoid contamination. Never let the dropper touch your eye or any surface. Read all the directions and paper work that come with the medication given to you by your pharmacist to ensure you are applying the eye drops correctly.
If there are other eye medications being used, allow at least 10 minutes between medications to avoid complications. Regular use of this eye medication ensures the best results. Tomoptic XE does not take effect right away and can take upwards to four weeks to reach the desired symptom relief.
Before taking Timpotic XE consult with your doctor about known allergies, current medications, supplemental herbs and vitamins, and any prior medical conditions to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

This may allow for alternate treatments in complicated cases of Glaucoma or other eye diseases.
