What is atropinization?
I just know the essence of the method of long-term atropinization in long-term paralysis of the ciliary muscle with atropine
Atropinization is diagnostic, when it is necessary to accurately determine the degree of myopia; therapeutic, when used to treat myopia in children;
and atropinization, because the drug is used in the form of a 1% solution of atropine, 1 drop in the evening, the duration is controlled by an ophthalmologist. It has been proven by randomized clinical studies that long-term atropinization slows down the development of myopia (myopia) by 30% in children; in some children, it can be practically stopped. Safe, definitely.
