How might Hyoscine Patches affect eyesight?

Last edited by Colin Abercrombie 4 years ago

When hyoscine patches are used to control salivation they can paralyse the pupils in the eyes. When they do, they also paralyse focussing (accommodation).

Glasses may be needed because - paralysed accommodation means:

  • No focussing for near
  • No focussing to overcome any long sightedness present
