Answer

Beta-adrenergic blockers

These agents decrease aqueous production and IOP.

Timolol ophthalmic (Timoptic, Timoptic XE, Betimol)

May reduce elevated and normal IOP, with or without glaucoma, by reducing production of aqueous humor or by outflow.

Levobunolol (AKBeta, Betagan)

Nonselective beta-adrenergic blocking agent that lowers intraocular pressure by reducing aqueous humor production and possibly increases outflow of aqueous humor.
