Cyclogyl Eye Drop
An anticholinergic, Cyclogyl 1% W/V Eye Drop is typically used just before an eye examination, especially before refraction eye exams. The drug temporarily widens, that is dilates the pupil and at the same time relaxes eye muscles.
The application of the drug is done about an hour before the examination is due. Once the first dose is given, the next is administered in about another 5 to 10 minutes. Cyclogyl 1% W/V Eye Drop is only meant for application in the eye. It should not be taken by mouth or injected into the body.
When it comes to application, wash your hands thoroughly before using the drops. Once you have put in the drops, do not wash the dropper, just place the cap back on and close it. Make sure to wash your hands after every use.
All medicines lead to a few side effects. While some are common and disappear in a while, others are less common and can be very dangerous.

Major side effects are very rare in this case, but if you experience pain in the eyes, changes in vision or irregular beating of the heart, get in touch with your medical provider and seek immediate treatment.
