Cyclogyl

Eye Drops

Cyclogyl blocks the receptors in the muscles of the eye.
Cyclogyl thus induces relaxation of the sphincter of the iris and the ciliary muscles.
Cyclogyl is an anti-muscarinic in the same class as atropine and scopolamine.
These receptors are involved controlling the pupil size and the shape of the lens.
When applied topically to the eyes, it causes a rapid, intense cycloplegic and mydriatic effect that is maximal in 15 to 60 minutes; recovery usually occurs within 24 hours.

Indications

Cyclogyl is indicated mainly to produce mydriasis and cycloplegia for diagnostic purposes.
Cyclogyl prevents the eye from accommodating for near vision (cycloplegia), blocks cyclopentolate produces dilatation of the pupil (mydriasis) and muscarinic receptors.

- Behavioral disturbances;
- Dizziness;
- Drowsiness;
- Dry mouth;
- Tachycardia;
