Minims Atropine Sulfate Ophthalmic Description

During an eye exam, your ophthalmologist may recommend the use of Minims Atropine Sulfate Ophthalmic or generic Atropine Sulfate to temporarily paralyze your accommodation reflex. This is the reflex action of your eye to focus on nearby objects and then distant objects or vice versa through pupil dilation. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Ophthalmologists Can Gain a Better View of the Back of Your Eyes

After instilling Minims Atropine Sulfate Ophthalmic by your ophthalmologist, it is absorbed into your eyeball and works by blocking the muscles that controls pupil contraction, your pupils then remain dilated (widened) so a more thorough exam can be performed. This is especially helpful when examining children’s eyes. The dilation may last for 24 hours or more in children and less time for adults. It is usually recommended to bring sunglasses for the trip home as your eyes will be very sensitive to sunlight and bright lights.
