What should I avoid while taking dorzolamide and timolol?

While taking dorzolamide and timolol, avoid driving a car or operating machinery until you know how you react to this medicine, as it can cause drowsiness and blurry vision.

Tell your dentist or doctor that you are taking dorzolamide and timolol before receiving surgery or treatment.

If you take dorzolamide and timolol or any other eye drops, you should avoid touching the eyedropper tip to your eye or other surfaces to prevent contamination of the bottle with germs. Do not modify your bottle of eye drops in any way.

Avoid swallowing these eye drops, as they are harmful if ingested.
