Risks

Atropine

The side effects of the 0.01% atropine eye drops should not be compared with the side effects that can occur with (100 times stronger) 1% eye drops.

The major studies on the subject have not described any serious side effects, however:

Allergic reactions in 4.5% of patients

Glare in 1.5%
