Lab 5 Effect of Atrophine on Rabbit's or Guineapig's eyes

Developed by Prova Biswas

Aim of practical: Purpose of this experiment is to evaluate the pharmacological action of Atropine Sulphate (1% w/v) on eye diameter, light reflex and corneal reflex of Rabbit.

Theory: Atropine, a belladonna alkaloid, has a high affinity for muscarinic receptors, where it competitively prevents acetylcholine from binding to the sites. It is a non selective blocker of muscarinic receptors. Atropine has the opposite actions to Pilocarpine, on the Rabbit's eye.
