About TROPAC DROPS

TROPAC DROPS belongs to the class of ‘anticholinergic and anti-muscarinic agents,’ primarily used to widen (dilate) the pupil for an eye examination or other diagnostic procedures. TROPAC DROPS is also used to treat uveitis. Uveitis is considered an inflammation of the middle layer of the eye called the uvea. Dilation of the pupil plays an important role in eye operative (intraocular) procedures like cataract (clouding of the lens of the eye) surgery to reduce complications during the operation and for better exposure of the cataract during surgery.

TROPAC DROPS contains ‘Tropicamide’ that belongs to the class of ‘Muscarinic Antagonists’ and ‘Mydriatics’ (that dilate pupils). Tropicamide is an anticholinergic agent that works by blocking muscarinic acetylcholine receptor activity (acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that sends signals to nerve cells). This process further causes short-acting mydriasis (dilation of the pupil) and cycloplegia (temporary paralysis of the eye) that helps to properly examine different parts of the eye like the lens, vitreous humor, and retina.

TROPAC DROPS is available in the form of eye drops. Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose that suits your medical condition. Common side effects of TROPAC DROPS include blurry vision, dry mouth, eye sensitivity, and stinging sensation in the eyes. These side effects may not occur in every patient using this medication and differ individually. If the side effects persist longer or worsen, please seek a doctor’s advice.

Let your doctor know if you are sensitive to TROPAC DROPS or any other medications. Before using TROPAC DROPS, let your doctor know if you have liver, kidney, or heart diseases, eye diseases like glaucoma, high blood pressure, diabetes, and any other medical history. TROPAC DROPS may cause blurry vision, hence do not drive or operate machinery until you feel better. Avoid the contact of TROPAC DROPS dispensing containers with eyes, eyelids, fingers, and other surfaces to prevent contamination. A pregnant and breastfeeding woman should consult their doctor before using TROPAC DROPS.
