Timolol and Latanoprost eye drops

What is this medicine?

LATANOPROST belongs to a group of medicines known as prostaglandin analogues. Timolol belongs to a group of medicines known as beta-blockers. Latanoprost works by increasing the natural outflow of fluid from the eye into the bloodstream. TIMOLOL works by slowing the formation of fluid in the eye.
Timolol and Latanoprost is used to reduce the pressure in your eye if you have conditions known as open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. Both these conditions are linked to an increase in the pressure within your eye, eventually affecting your eyesight. Your doctor will usually prescribe you Timolol and Latanoprost when other medicines have not worked adequately.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?
