Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Gel Description

Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Gel or Timolol Maleate generic is a prescription strength medication used to treat high pressure inside the eye due to open angle glaucoma or other eye diseases such as ocular hypertension. Noticeable symptoms of these eye conditions are non-existent until vision damage occurs. This is why it is so important to have your eyes examined regularly. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Balancing the Fluid in Your Eyes Helps to Reduce Ocular Pressure

Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Gel belongs to a class of drugs known as beta-blockers. When instilled in your eye(s) as directed, Timolol Maleate will block the beta receptors in order to reduce the amount of aqueous humor being produced. This gives the fluid time to drain out instead of building up and restores an even fluid level your sight is not compromised.

Conditions Treated by Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Gel

Glaucoma is an eye condition where the optic nerve (at the back of your eye) is damaged. This can lead to loss of vision unless diagnosed and treated quickly. In most cases, the damage to the optic nerve is due to an increased pressure within the eye that can cause damage to your optic nerve.

Chronic open-angle glaucoma (also called chronic glaucoma or primary open-angle glaucoma) is the most common type. This develops slowly so that any damage to the optic nerve and loss of sight are gradual. The term 'open-angle' refers to the angle between the iris and sclera which is normal, in contrast to acute angle-closure glaucoma where the angle is narrowed. This is uncommon. In this condition there is a sudden increase in the pressure within one eye. The eye quickly becomes painful and red. Glaucoma can affect both of your eyes. However, it can often progress more quickly in one eye than in the other.
