YOUR CHILD’S MEDICINE AT A GLANCE

Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop is a medicine given to treat eye problems such as myopia where a child can see nearby objects clearly but has problems seeing distant objects.

Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop should preferably be only used in the eye that is experiencing problems. The dose and duration depend upon the type and severity of the disease condition. So, stick to the dose, time, and way prescribed by the doctor.

Always wash the hands thoroughly with soap and hot water before and after using Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop. Doing so will help avoid the risk of any infection. For instilling the medicine, ask your child to lie down and look up and to the other side. Make sure your child remains still and calm while you are putting the medicine. Put the medicine drops in the lower eyelid, directed away from the nose. After this, ask your child to keep their eyes closed for some time so that the medicine doesn’t spill out and gets absorbed properly.

Abstain your child from rubbing their eyes soon after putting the medicine as it can lead to redness or irritation. Your child should not wear any sort of contact lenses while on treatment with Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop as this medicine can damage the lenses.  Do not abruptly stop the medicine by yourself, even if your child starts to feel better. Continue the medicine until the prescribed course is complete. Consult your child’s doctor in case of any confusion.

This medicine may have some minor and temporary side effects such as blurry vision, photophobia, eye irritation, and stinging in the eyes. These episodes should start receding after a few doses. However, if these side effects persist or become bothersome for your child, report to the doctor without any delay.

Narrate your child’s complete medical history to your child’s doctor, including any previous episode of allergy, heart problems, blood disorders, birth defects, airway obstruction, lung anomaly, gastrointestinal problems, skin disorders, liver impairment, and kidney malfunction. This information is critical for dose alterations and for planning your child’s overall treatment.

BENEFITS OF MYATRO 0.01% EYE DROP FOR YOUR CHILD

In Treatment of Myopia

Myopia or nearsightedness is an eye disorder in which your child may have difficulty seeing distant objects but can see objects that are near clearly. Childhood myopia can be diagnosed at a very early age and can increase gradually from adolescence to adulthood. A low dose of Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop, if started at an early age, can significantly slow down the progression of myopia, preventing the progression of near-sightedness in the future. Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop helps treat myopia by relaxing the muscles, enabling the eyes to focus on distant objects.

Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop does not pose serious side effects and is well-tolerated by children. In case the side effects do occur, they’re likely to subside once the body adapts to the medicine.

HOW CAN I GIVE MYATRO 0.01% EYE DROP TO MY CHILD?

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Hold the dropper close to the eye without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside the lower eyelid. Wipe off the extra liquid.

HOW MYATRO EYE DROP WORKS

Myopia in children commonly occurs due to a problem in their focus mechanism. Myatro 0.01% Eye Drop belongs to a class of medicines called anticholinergic drugs. It works by relaxing particularly those eye muscles which enable the eyes to focus on distant objects.

WHAT IF I FORGET TO GIVE MYATRO 0.01% EYE DROP TO MY CHILD?

Unless your child’s doctor has advised a specific regime for your child, you can give the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for the next dose. Do not give the double dose to catch up and follow the prescribed dosing schedule.
