Teoptic® 2%

Eye Drops solution for the reduction of intraocular pressure (fluid pressure inside the eye).

Teoptic 2 Percent

Teoptic 2% is indicated for the reduction of intraocular pressure e.g. in ocular hypertension, chronic open angle glaucoma, some secondary glaucomas.

Teoptic 2% contains carteolol which is a non-selective beta-adrenergic blocking agent with associated intrinsic sympathomimetic activity (ISA) and without significant membrane stabilizing activity. It has been shown that beta blocking agents with ISA affect cardiac output, heart rate at rest, peripheral vascular resistance and consequently peripheral circulation less than beta blocking agents without ISA.

Carteolol reduces normal and elevated intraocular pressure whether or not accompanied by glaucoma. The exact mechanism of the ocular hypotensive effect of beta-blockers has not been definitively demonstrated. However, it appears that ophthalmic beta-adrenergic blocking agents mainly act by reducing aqueous humor production.
