Overview

INTRODUCTION

Iotim Eye Drop is a beta-blocker used to treat elevated intraocular pressure (high pressure inside the eye) in people with ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma. It lowers the pressure in the eye by decreasing the production of fluid and reduces the risk of vision loss.

Always wash your hands before using Iotim Eye Drop. Use only the number of drops that your doctor has prescribed and wait for about 5 minutes between each drop. If you wear soft contact lenses, remove them before using the drops and wait for at least 15 minutes before putting them back in. If you are also using another eye medicine, wait for at least 10 minutes before using it. Read the leaflet that comes with the medicine for a full guide on how to use the drops and get the most benefit. Do not touch the tip of the dropper or bottle. This may lead to infection. You should use this medicine regularly to get the most benefit and it is best used at the same time(s) each day. If you want to stop using it, consult your doctor first.

The most common side effects are burning and stinging sensation in the eye. There are other, less common, side effects affecting other parts of the body some of which may be serious as Iotim Eye Drop is absorbed into the systemic circulation.  Consult your doctor if you are bothered by any side effects.

You should not use this medicine if you have asthma, severe COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or a serious heart condition. Inform your doctor if you have, or have had, coronary heart disease, heart failure, diabetes, breathing problems, an overactive thyroid gland or liver, or kidney disease. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine.

BENEFITS OF IOTIM EYE DROP

In Glaucoma

Iotim Eye Drop belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. It is used to reduce pressure in the eyes (ocular hypertension). This pressure can lead to an illness called glaucoma. If the pressure in your eye is too high, it can damage your sight. This medicine works by helping the fluid to flow from inside the eye into your bloodstream. It may be used alone or with other eye drops. Do not use it too often as that can make it less effective. You should only use it in the affected eye and take it regularly as prescribed by your doctor. Most people with glaucoma or high pressure in the eyes do not feel sick. If you stop taking it, the pressure in your eye will not be controlled. This could lead to a loss of sight.
