    A blind randomised cross-over study was conducted on 10 patients (20 eyes) to compare the effect in patients with open-angle glaucoma of metipranolol 0.3% with that of timolol 0.25% on intraocular pressure following one month's topical instillation with each preparation alone. There was no statistically significant difference in intraocular pressure reduction between these two preparations, and the ocular tolerance of both was good. There was no significant difference in the blood pressure, pulse, or pupil diameters of patients receiving either preparation.
