How long will it take for the atropine to wear off and my pupils to shrink back to normal size?

Atropine for eyes: The duration of action for Atropine can last up to two weeks. If vision is blurred, protect eyes from bright light & do not drive or operate dangerous machinery until the atropine's effects have worn off. Many eye docs do not use Atropine because of this long duration of action.
