Contact lens wearers: Avoid wearing contact lenses during treatment due to reduction in lachrymal secretion, linked to beta-blockers in general.
If the patient has to undergo surgery, tell the doctor that the patient is using TIMABAK as timolol may modify the effects of certain drugs used during anaesthesia.
