Betoptic

This is the trade name for the drug betaxolol, a beta-blocker eye drop used for treating glaucoma. Unlike other beta-blockers (like timolol), this is a “selective” blocker with less systemic side effects. That being said, it is not often used because the side effects of timolol are usually negligible and timolol is available as an incredibly cheap generic.
