Atropine Drops causing Droopy Eye?

The 2nd dose of drops went in pretty seamlessly. I had her lay on the couch on her princess pillow and just dropped them in. She wasn't giggling this time but she was shutting her eyes and saying they are hard to open. She keeps pointing to the left eye - which is her "bad" eye - the 20/200 one and saying it isn't working. I notice in the picture also that it is noticably droopy.


  1. We were never prescribed the drops, but I can see how they might make her eyes droopy. Was this a side effect from the medication?

  2. Yeah the doctor said it definitely could have been from the drops plus she was just waking up. She got real dilated after the first dose and probably didn't need the 2nd one.
