What container sizes are available to the consumer with out the preservatives?
You can consult your ophthalmologist for advice. He shouldd be aware if there are any timolol available without preservatives. Generally, any drop in a multidose container is going to have some kind of preservative. You will need a single dose vial for each day if you need a non-preservative preparation. If this is not available commercially, your ophthalmologist may need to send you to a compounding pharmacy so that they can specially make a non preservative form. This will likely be more expensive and may or may not be covered by insurance. As far as I know, the ocudose is the only one available without preservatives. It comes in 60 individual units and each unit contains 0.2ml of solution for one time use only. It is available in 0.25% and 0.5% strengths.
