Mydriatic Spray: Is it effective with the eyes closed?


Tropicamide 1% mydriatic effect: comparison between spray in closed eyes and eye drops in open eyes.


The vaporized tropicamide 1% mydriatic effect in closed eyes was clinically equivalent to the instillation effect of eye drop in open eyes.

See:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22775152

Comment: use the spray with the eyes closed. Patients tolerate this better AND it works!!
