However, the non-therapeutically trained optometrist can only access the shorter-acting cyclopentolate
for this purpose and so the frequency of instillation may need to be increased to TDS, or even QDS in substantial abrasions and/or those with darkly pigmented irides, for example.
One hour before which, a drop of 1% cyclopentolate
hydrochloride (Alcon, Belgium) was topically administered to achieve cycloplegia.
and epinephrine, used for dilatation and cycloplegic purposes, are category C drugs.
Cycloplegics--in few cases like hyphaema, traumatic uveitis--Atropine eye ointment (1%) TDS, Cyclopentolate
eye drops (1%) BD.
Third, there are some examples of using tropicamide for cycloplegia, but there are more international research examples of using cyclopentolate
in recent years.
One drop of 1% cyclopentolate
(Sikloplejin[R], Abdi Ibrahim, Turkey) was applied to the left eye; 10 minutes later, under topical anesthesia with 0.5% proparacaine (Alcaine[R], Alcon, Belgium), 6 immobilized larvae were mechanically removed.
The eyes were dilated with a combination of cyclopentolate
0.2% and phenylephrine 1% eye drops applied 1 hour before the examination.
eye drops may be prescribed to reduce the risk of posterior synechiae, and to make the patient feel more comfortable by alleviating any accommodative spasm.
Topical steroids (dexamethasone 0.1% eye drop q 4hr) and fortified topical antibiotics (vancomycin 25mg/ml q 1hr and ceftazidime 50mg/ml q 1hr) with mydriatics (Cyclopentolate
1% eye drops q 12 hr) were applied in all cases for 10 days.
(12) used tropicamide 1.0%, phenylephrine 10.0%, and cyclopentolate
1.0% for pupil dilation, and miosis was noted in 9.5% eyes.
After performing initial subjective refractions, accommodation was paralyzed with 0.5% cyclopentolate
. The eyes were then optimally corrected for astigmatism, and their hyperfocal points were conjugated with the retina with trial lenses.
