Efficacy
Statistical methods / analysis
In previous studies, participants receiving 0.01% atropine eye drops experienced a change in pupil size from 3.89 mm to 5.02 mm, with a standard deviation of 0.92 mm. To be able to detect a difference of 1 standard deviation at 80% power and a significance of 0.05, a minimum sample size of 11 per concentration investigated is necessary. Assuming a dropout rate of 20%, our project aims to recruit 56 participants with 14 participants per concentration/control.

Summary
Brief summary
Atropine eye drops are known to affect pupil reactions and the ability of the eyes to focus on near objects. This study will quantify the effects of different concentrations of atropine eye drops on these ocular structures.
