Contain the active ingredient : Cyclopentolate HCl which is temporarily paralyses the muscles that help the eye focus (cycloplegia), which is used to aid tests on vision (cycloplegic refraction), particularly in children.
Cyclopentolate blocks muscarinic receptors in the muscles of the eye. These receptors are involved controlling the size of the pupil and the shape of the lens. By blocking these receptors, cyclopentolate causes the pupil to dilate (mydriasis), which it makes it easier to examine structures inside the eyeball, such as the retina, optic disc, macula and fovea. This is called fundoscopy.
One drop will be put into the eyes 40 minutes before the eye exam, and if necessary a second drop 15 minutes later.
Cyclopentolate is also used in the treatment of inflammatory eye conditions such as iritis and uveitis. When treating inflammatory eye conditions one or two drops are put into the eye up to four times a day, or as directed by your doctor.
What is it used for?
Dilating the pupil to allow easier examination inside the eyeball.
Relaxing the muscles in the eye when vision is being tested.
Dilating the pupil in inflammatory conditions of the iris and uveal tract, such as iritis and uveitis.
