Can’t find phenylephrine? Look no further…

phenylephrinePhenylephrine Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution sounds like a mouthful but is actually meant for your eyes. It may be hard to say but it is even harder to find right now.

Phenylephrine Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution is a sterile solution that is used as a vasoconstrictor and mydriatic. In other words, it is used to dilate the eyes and may be applied for wide angle glaucoma, refraction, ophthalmoscopic examination, and general diagnostic procedures.

Many procedures necessitate the use of Phenylephrine Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution which makes it a staple item for many optical offices. The problem is that there is a current shortage.  This is because many manufacturers have stopped production. Currently, there is only one FDA approved manufacturer.

The good news is that Amcon has inventory on hand (actually it’s in the refrigerator) and ready to ship to those professionals licensed to purchase pharmaceuticals. Please contact us at 1-800-255-6161 or go to www.amconlabs.com if you would like to place an order.
