The Bimatoprost Ocular Insert is intended to provide sustained delivery of bimatoprost to
the ocular surface to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle
glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of two different doses of the Bimatoprost
Ocular Insert, compared to an active control arm with timolol ophthalmic solution (0.5%).
Key Inclusion Criteria:
- Written informed consent
- At least 18 years of age
- Diagnosis in both eyes of either primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) or ocular
- Best corrected-distance visual acuity score equivalent to 20/80 or better
- Stable visual field
- Central corneal thickness between 490 - 620 micrometers
Inclusion Criteria at the Randomization Visit:
- IOP for each eye is ≥ 23 mmHg at T=0hr, ≥ 20 mmHg at T=2hr and T=8hr.
- Inter-eye IOP difference of ≤ 5.0 mmHg at T=0hr, T=2hr and T=8hr.
- IOP for each eye is ≤ 30 mmHg at T=0hr, T=2hr and T=8hr.
Key Exclusion Criteria:
- Any known contraindication to prostaglandin analog (latanoprost, travoprost,
bimatoprost, tafluprost) or timolol

contraindicate the use of beta-blocker drops

such a study within 30 days of Screening
- Inability to adequately evaluate the retina
