This preparation may cause CNS disturbances.

This is especially true in younger age groups, but may occur at any age, especially with the stronger cyclopentolate hydrochloride solution.

Premature and small infants are especially prone to CNS and cardiopulmonary side effects from systemic absorption of cyclopentolate.

To minimize absorption, use only 1 drop of a 0.5% solution per eye followed by pressure applied over the nasolacrimal sac for two to three minutes.

Observe infants closely for at least 30 minutes following instillation.
