Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The EMLc Subcommittee endorsed the inclusion of atropine eye drops on the EMLc. The Subcommittee recognised the risk of systemic effects with atropine eye drops in infants under 3 months. The Subcommittee decided to nominate homatropine and cyclopentolate as alternative mydriatic preparations for use in children.
