Abstract

We reviewed the effect of timolol in 89 eyes (50 patients) with various types of pediatric glaucoma. Systemic side effects were observed in two patients (4%). Intraocular pressure (IOP) effect of timolol could only be observed in 18 eyes of 11 patients. The average decrease of IOP was 30.7% at the last follow-up.
