In brief: Needs rx
Atropine is the most common belladonna product and there are some related drugs all available in drop and ointment form. These require a prescription to obtain.
They affect focusing so use is uncomfortable as it disturbs the vision - especially at near - and also the eyes are light sensitive due to the dilation. These should only be used with the advice of your ophthalmologist.
