FAQs about Atropine eye drops
Why is a Compounding Pharmacy necessary for Low-Dose Atropine Eye Drops?
The strength of eye drops needed for children with myopia isn’t currently commercially available. A compounding pharmacist can use the higher-strength commercial product and dilute it for the pediatric patient. This is done only in a sterile compounding lab.
Why Would a Sterile Compounded Prescription Be Needed?
Certain drugs, combinations of drugs, concentrations of the drugs, or specific dosage forms that the patient needs may not be commercially available at a traditional retail pharmacy.
