Hi. My 2 yr old daughter has a slight lazy eye. We were given eye drops to use to help correct it. The directions were to use 1 drop in her eye once a day for 5 days. We did this for the first time 2 days ago, and her eye is still dilated, and we are worried. The drops we were given are Atropine Sulfate Ophthalmic Solution 1%. If her eyes will be dilated this long or longer with one drop, how are we to give them to her once a day for 5 days? I am guesing you cannot give them when the eye is still dilated right?? I called her eye doctor yesterday, and they said it was ok, and not to worry, but I am. I tried to call again today, but no one will answer. I even called they pharmacy, but they were no help.
