Active ingredient


Levobunolol is a non-cardioselective beta-adrenoceptor blocking agent, equipotent at both beta1 and beta2 receptors. The primary mechanism of action of levobunolol in reducing intraocular pressure is most likely a decrease in aqueous humor production. Levobunolol reduces intraocular pressure with little or no effect on pupil size in contrast to the miosis which cholinergic agents are known to produce.
