What is Mypilin ophthalmic solution for eye focus adjustment?
Mypilin ophthalmic solution is a medication designed for the adjustment of eye focus. This ophthalmic solution contains several active ingredients, including Neostigmine methylsulfate, Sodium chloride, Calcium chloride hydrate, Sodium bicarbonate, and Potassium L-aspartate. The mechanism of action of Mypilin primarily revolves around its active component, Neostigmine methylsulfate, which plays a pivotal role in the medication's effectiveness.
Neostigmine methylsulfate is a cholinesterase inhibitor, functioning by inhibiting the breakdown of acetylcholine in the synaptic cleft, thereby increasing the availability of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that transmits signals between nerve cells and muscle cells in the eye. This inhibition leads to enhanced muscle tone and improved neuromuscular transmission, ultimately facilitating changes in the eye's focusing ability.
Sodium chloride and Calcium chloride hydrate present in Mypilin help in maintaining the osmotic balance and ensuring proper ionic concentrations in the eye, which is crucial for maintaining eye function. Sodium bicarbonate and Potassium L-aspartate contribute to maintaining the physiological pH of the eye and supporting the overall health of the ocular tissues.
The effectiveness of Mypilin in adjusting eye focus is notable in cases of conditions such as accommodative esotropia or myopia, where the eye struggles to focus on objects at various distances. By enhancing neuromuscular transmission and aiding in maintaining optimal ionic and pH conditions within the eye, Mypilin helps in achieving improved focus, alleviating visual discomfort, and enhancing overall visual acuity.

How to use
Apply 2-3 drops at a time, 4 times a day. Your doctor may adjust the dosage according to your symptoms.
Be sure to wash your hands with soap and water before use. Don't touch the surface of your eye with the tip of eye dropper. After use, close your eyes for 1 to 5 minutes, pressing the inner corner of your eyes. If there is any excess liquid, wipe it off with a clean gauze or tissue. If you need to use other eye drops simultaneously, wait more than 5 minutes between use.
Contraindications: do not use for patients with closed-angle glaucoma, or predisposition of increased intraocular pressure such as narrow angle or shallow anterior chamber. Do not use for patients wearing contact lenses. Do not use for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
If an allergic reaction occurs, patient needs to stop using the medicine and consult with their doctor. If patient is taking any other medication or treatment, they should consult with their doctor in advance.
