Description

Betopic (Betaxolol) eye drops are used alone or with other medications to help treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma or other eye diseases, such as ocular hypertension. The term ocular hypertension generally refers to any situation in which the pressure level inside of the eye, known as intraocular pressure, is higher than usual.

Lowering high pressure inside the eye can help to prevent blindness. Betaxolol is part of a class of drugs known as beta blockers and it works by lowering the amount of fluid that is produced within the eye.

Always use Betaxolol as directed by one’s physician.

Before applying eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid any possible contamination, do not touch the dropper end, let it touch your eye or let it touch any other surface. If you're wearing contact lenses, remove them prior to using the eye drops. Wait for at least 15 minutes after using the medication to reinsert your contact lenses.

To use the eye drops, tilt your head backward, look up, and pull down the lower lid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly overtop of your eye and place the directed amount of drops into the pouch, usually twice daily or as instructed by your doctor. Look down and gently shut your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place a finger at the inner corner of your eye, near your nose, and apply light pressure. This will help prevent the medication from draining. Try not to blink and avoid rubbing your eye.

Repeat these steps for your second eye if so instructed by your doctor or if your dose is for more than 1 drop. Do not rinse the dropper, and be sure to replace the dropper cap after each use. If you are using a different kind of eye medication, wait for at least ten minutes before using the other medications. Use this medication regularly as prescribed in order to get the most benefit from it.

To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. It is important to continue using this medication even if you feel better. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in their eyes don't feel sick.
