Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I am an ophthalmologist on this site. Timolol is used as a pressure lowering drop. Please, ask your question in detail. Thanks.
going without the drop for a month is probably not a great idea. There are a couple of options. One would be to switch to a different beta blocker with less effects on bronchitis such as betaxolol. Another option is to switch to a different class altogether such as Lumigan or Xalatan. I find these two meds to control the pressure even a bit better than the timolol however they can cause some eye redness and darkening of the skin around the eyes. Overall though Xalatan controls the pressure even better than timolol in my experience. I wish you well, Dr. Stevens
