Clinical trial comparing timolol ophthalmic solution to pilocarpine in open-angle glaucoma.

Abstract

A ten-week, double-masked, randomized, clinical trial compared timolol ophthalmic solution and pilocarpine in the therapy of open-angle glaucoma. Timolol decreased the intraocular pressure at least as much as pilocarpine and did not induce miosis, accommodative spasm, or other annoying side effects. The pulse was slowed by timolol, but blood pressure was unaffected. Significant decreases in intraocular pressure were still present after ten weeks of maintenance therapy with the same concentration of drug.
