Abstract

Metipranolol is a non-selective, beta adrenoceptor blocking agent. It is applied topically to the eye twice daily to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in order to prevent or at least slow the progression of glaucoma. Metipranolol is one of several topical beta adrenergic agonists used to treat glaucoma. Others include timolol, betaxolol, carteolol, and levobunolol. © 2007
