Homat (Eye Drops)



Homatropine hydrobromide 2%

Homat Homatropine Eye Drops works antagonist to the Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, that are responsible for the vaso-constriction of the smooth muscles mediated by acetylcholine.

Being an anti-cholinergic class Homat Homatropine Eye Drops, are specialized in blocking the actions stimulated by Acetylcholine. The ciliary body in eyes contains muscarinic receptors in the parasympathetically innervated smooth muscle fibers that are regulated by acetylcholine causing the constriction of Iris Sphincter Muscles. It blocks the activation of muscarinic receptors by blocking acetylcholine in turn rendering the constriction of iris sphincter muscles and the ciliary body (responsible for accommodative power). Thus producing the condition of Pupil dilation, Cyclopelgia accompanying mydriasis.

  • To produce conditions of Cyclopelgia and Mydriasis
  • For the examination of retina, optic disc and measurement of refractive error.
  • Dilating the pupil in inflammatory conditions of the iris and uveal tract, such as iritis and uveitis.
  • Prevent the formation of adhesions between the lens and the iris.
  • For Examination: One or Two drops in the eye 30 minutes before examination and may be repeated in 5-10 minutes if needed.
  • For treatment of Uveitis/Iritis: Instill One or Two Drops in the eye(s) after every 3-4 Hours.
  • Apply pressure over the naso-lacrimal sac for two to three minutes
