Paragon BioTeck announced it has received FDA approval for Phenylephrine HCl Ophthalmic Solution, USP, to dilate the pupil.
Phenylephrine HCl is an alpha-1 receptor agonist which acts as a potent vasoconstrictor and mydriatic. When instilled into the eye, Phenylephrine constricts ophthalmic blood vessels and the radial muscle of the iris, causing mydriasis.
