4.1 Therapeutic indications
Atropine sulfate is an antimuscarinic agent used as a cycloplegic and mydriatic. The eye drops are used in the treatment of iritis and uveitis to immobilise the iris and ciliary muscle and to prevent or break down adhesions.
Since it is a powerful cycloplegic it is used in the determination of refraction in children below six years and children with convergent strabismus.
