It has antianginal, hypotensive and antiarrhythmic effects, which are manifested with systemic use. Reduces the automatism of the sinus node, reduces heart rate, slows down AV conduction, reduces contractility and myocardial oxygen demand.
When applied topically, it quickly penetrates the cornea, in a small amount enters the systemic circulation due to absorption through the vessels of the conjunctiva, the mucous membranes of the nose and lacrimal tract.
From the side of the organ of vision: when applied topically, irritation and hyperemia of the conjunctiva, skin of the eyelids, burning and itching in the eyes, lacrimation, photophobia, edema of the corneal epithelium, punctate superficial keratopathy, corneal hypesthesia, diplopia, ptosis, dry eyes are possible.
