DuoTrav Eye Drops are used to lower pressure in the eye and to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition in which the pressure of the fluid in the eye may be high. However, some people with glaucoma may have normal eye pressure. Also some people with raised eye pressure may not have glaucoma.
DuoTrav Eye Drops contain two active ingredients, travoprost and timolol that lower the pressure in the eye. Travoprost belongs to the family of medicines known as ‘prostaglandins’. Timolol belongs to a family of medicines known as ‘beta blockers’.
