Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Timoptic(R) (timolol maleate) as Best Brand Name Beta Blocker for Glaucoma: Timoptic Brand is Highest Rated in Survey of Ophthalmologists
Date:3/4/2010

able in the U.S. "With preservative-free Timoptic in Ocudose, Aton is able to enhance its mission of providing medically essential therapeutics that serve a critical role in the practice of medicine."

A preservative-free beta blocker is an important option for many glaucoma patients, who must use medication for long periods of time. Preservatives in glaucoma medications have been noted in the medical literature to cause some patients discomfort upon installation and may have toxic effects, compromising tear film stability and causing damage to the cornea and conjunctiva. This is a particular concern for those who already have dry eye, are at increased risk for ocular surface disease or are taking more than one prescribed medication for glaucoma.(1-3)

In an additional survey of ophthalmologists in March 2009 sponsored by Aton Pharma, virtually all (97%) believed preservative-free glaucoma medications may enhance the ocular comfort of glaucoma patients, while 86 percent believed that preservative-free glaucoma medications may enhance patient quality of life.
