Low dose atropine has been shown to be an effective treatment to slow the progression of myopia.

  • A prescription of 0.01% atropine is given to be used once e day.

  • This can be used instead of contact lens or in addition to contact lens (creating a synergistic effect)

  • This is a good option for very young children or if a child or their parents are not ready for contact lens use.


Minimal side effects are similar to in-office dilation drops. Light sensitivity is experienced by some children. Sunglasses can be used outdoors or in bright sunlight if it is bothersome.
