Atropine+ combines low-dose atropine (0.01%, 0.025% and 0.05%) with a soothing lubricant and 50% less BAK preservative (0.005%).
Studies show that a low dose of atropine, typically administered as eye drops in the evening, has the potential to significantly slow the progression of myopia in children – helping prevent severe nearsightedness.1 2
To make caring for children's vision simpler, OSRX offers three low-dose Atropine+ drops. We compound 0.01%, 0.025% and 0.05% concentrations, allowing you to customize myopia treatment by patient. Our OMNI Atropine+ eye drops ship directly to your patients or practice (your choice) at no added cost.
How to Prescribe: New prescribers must complete an OSRX new prescriber registration form. Once completed, a member of our staff will contact you to discuss pricing, prescribing process and shipping details.
