Atropine is an eye drop that has been used in eye care for decades, in treating patients with lazy eye or to aid in determining our final glasses prescription for kids. Atropine, compounded in a drop at a very low dose works on the receptors in a growing eye by blocking the signal for the eye to grow. Since the dose is so low, there are virtually no adverse side effects to using this drop. Low dose atropine has been used at Miamisburg Vision Care and in offices around the country to reduce the growth of the eye and provide better options for children as they mature.
