seizures at the eye doctor optometrist office
- 0Feb 6, '12 by 10145nurseHave a patient who received eye drops (gtt) at optometrist office proparacaine and ended up having a seizure, has anyone else experienced this condition?
- 0Feb 6, '12 by ckh23I have never heard of this. I looked up the drug and it under precautions it does say "systemic toxicity may occur rarely; including CNS stimulation followed by depression". Is this the first time the patient has taken the drops? Or do they use it chronically? Do they have a history of seizure?
