2. an agent that produces cycloplegia.

cy·clo·ple·gic

(sī'klō-plē'jik),
1. Relating to cycloplegia.
2. A drug that paralyzes the ciliary muscle and thus the power of accommodation.

cycloplegic 

1. Pertaining to cycloplegia.
2. A drug which produces cycloplegia. Cycloplegic drugs, which act by inhibiting the action of acetylcholine at muscarinic receptors in the ciliary muscle, include atropine, cyclopentolate hydrochloride, homatropine hydrobromide, hyoscine hydrobromide (scopolamine hydrobromide) and tropicamide. Syn. anticholinergic; antimuscarinic; cholinergic antagonist; cholinergic blocking agent; parasympatholytic. See mydriatic.

Therefore, cycloplegic refraction with 1% topical cyclopentolate hydrochloride drops was performed followed by prescription of maximal tolerable refractive correction.
Additionally, Oliver showed a lead of accommodation, worse in his left eye (R +0.25 L -0.25), which was the likely source for his conflicting acuity and cycloplegic refraction results.
[23] suggest, in order to minimize the effect of latent hyperopia, the planned refraction to be corrected for patients younger than 40 years was the manifest refraction plus 50% of the difference between the manifest refraction and the cycloplegic refraction.
This study did not examine the role of antibiotics and cycloplegics in treating corneal abrasions.
Latent hyperopia is a possibility and the difference between the retinoscopy and subjective result, slightly reduced accommodative amplitude, and stereoacuity results made the author consider undertaking a cycloplegic refraction.
All patients' best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and deviation test (near and far alternate prism cover test), Worth 4-dot test (near and far), Titmus stereo test, cycloplegic retinoscopy, and fundus examination results were recorded from their files.
Preoperative evaluation included uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), cycloplegic refraction, intraocular pressure, and a comprehensive anterior and posterior segment evaluation to find any pathological cause of decreased BCVA.
Objective: To evaluate macular choroidal thickness (CT) and retinal thickness in Turkish patients with high myopia without maculopathy and in normal subjects and to examine the association with age, axial length (AL), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), cycloplegic refraction, and spherical equivalent (SE).
* Drop of antibiotic-steroid with cycloplegic instilled and eye was patched for 24 hrs.
Ocular examination included vision, slit-lamp examination, cycloplegic refraction, orthoptic evaluation, intraocular pressure measurement, and fundoscopy.
Treatment recommendations vary geographically and include the use of topical antibiotics, midriatic or cycloplegic drops, and eye patching.
