Dorzolamide hydrochloride/timolol maleate (Cosopt) preservative-free eye drops: new pipette design

Old pipette design withdrawn after reported eye injuries.

Article date: March 2014

In December 2013 we reported eye injuries caused by the pipette design of Cosopt preservative-free eye drops. Because of these injuries, a new pipette design was introduced in February 2014 as an interim measure. The instructions for using the new design are enclosed in the product packaging. The old pipette design is now being withdrawn. Please see further guidance on the MHRA website, including an updated Patient Information Leaflet and detailed instructions for use.
