Abstract :

Significant intraocular pressure reduction in each group was found in week 1 and week 2, which was 7.4 mmHg in Betaxolol and 8.4 mmHg in Timolol 0.5%. Insignificant intraocular pressure reduction occurred in week 1 - 2, 0.1 mmHg in Timolol and 0.4 mmHg in Betaxolol. Comparative test on the reduction of intraocular pressure in two groups, both in premedication pressure reduction until week 1 and week 2, revealed no significance. Comparative test on intraocular pressure change between both groups also revealed no significance.
