They were randomly divided into three groups.20 patients in Group I treated with timolol.20 patients in Group II treated with fixed combination of timolol with latanoprost.20 patients in Group III treated with fixed combinationof timolol with dorzolamide. Thorough history was taken and patients underwent a comprehensive ocular examination i. e, visual acuity recording, slit lamp examination, gonioscopy, fundus examination with +78 D, +90 D lens, Goldmann applanation tonometry, visual fields recording on Humphreys field analyser. All the patients were followed up to six months.
