Dorzolamide reversibly suppresses carbonic anhydrase in the ciliary processes of the eye, leading in decreased generation of bicarbonate ions and concomitant reduction in Na and fluid transport, hence, reducing aqueous humor production and intraocular pressure.
Timolol is a non-selective β-adrenergic receptor antagonist. Although the specific method by which it reduces intraocular pressure has not been determined, it is speculated that its primary activity may be linked to lowering aqueous humor production or, more likely, improving aqueous humor outflow.
