Abstract

An oxazolidine derivative of phenylephrine, and the non-toxic pharmaceuticlaly acceptable salt forms thereof. The prodrug is much quicker absorbed across the cornea of the eye, does not induce the same unwanted side effects as phenylephrine, and can produce the same mydriatic effect as phenylephrine at dosage levels of approximately one-tenth the level of phenylephrine.
