Summary of Clinical Use
Used to dilate the pupil to allow examination of the eye.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Cyclopentolate antagonises muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. In the eye these receptors control muscular function of the sphicter of the iris and cilliary body. So when applied to the eye this drug causes temporary pupilary dilation and paralysis of the muscles of the ciliary body.
