Dilate Plus (Tropicamide & Phenylephrine Hydrochloride )
Therapeutic Group: Ophthalmic » Mydriatics & Cycloplegics
Dilate Plus

Each ml contains Tropicamide BP 8 mg and Phenylephrine Hydrochloride BP 50 mg.

Dilate Plus sterile eye drops is a combination of Tropicamide and Phenylephrine Hydrochloride. Tropicamide is an anticholinergic agent which paralyses the sphincter muscle of the iris resulting in pupillary dilatation. The ciliary muscle is also paralyzed leading to loss of accommodation.

Phenylephrine Hydrochloride is an alpha receptor sympathetic agonist used in local ocular disorder because of its vasoconstrictor and mydriatic action without cycloplegia.
Dilate Plus can be used both for diagnostic and therapeutic purpose:

• Therapeutic purpose: Inflammatory conditions of the uveal tract

• Diagnostic purpose: Retinal photography, Refractive errors, Funduscopy, Slit lamp examination

• Pre-operative use : In order to undergo surgical procedure that requires the visualization of structures behind the iris, such as cataract extraction, vitrectomy and retinal detachment surgery, the pupil must be adequately dilated before surgery.
Dosage & Administration

Uveitis: 1-2 drops bid-qid or as required.
