What is Cyclopentolate Phenylephrine
Cyclopentolate and phenylephrine are used together in an ophthalmic preparation for producing mydriasis for ophthalmologic examination.
Cyclopentolate is a cycloplegic mydriatic agent that causes loss of accommodation and mydriasis.
Phenylephrine is a sympathomimetic agent that causes vasoconstriction and mydriasis.
The amount of mydriasis produced by this combination is greater than that produced by either agent alone.
