Combigan is an eye drop prescribed for the treatment of open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension (high pressure inside the eye). These conditions are caused by high pressure in the eye and can result in pain from pressure in the eye. Over time, glaucoma and ocular hypertension can damage your vision. It contains a combination of brimonidine and timolol. Brimonidine works by reducing the amount of fluid in the eyes, which in turn, lowers pressure inside the eye. On the other hand, timolol is a beta-blocker that also decreases pressure in the eye. Brimonidine and timolol work by narrowing the blood vessels in the eye to lessen the fluid that passes through the blood vessel into the eyeball.
