Eyedrops used for mydriasis and cycloplegia can be systemically absorbed, causing serious side effects, including oxygen desaturation, apnea, bradycardia, transient hypertension, delayed gastric emptying, and transient paralytic ileus. These effects can be more serious in infants because of their lower body mass and immature cardiovascular and nervous systems. We report ...
