Characteristics of Proxymetacaine

Local anesthetic from the group of esters for use in ophthalmology.

Proxymethacaine hydrochloride (proparacaine hydrochloride) is soluble in water, warm ethyl alcohol, methanol. Insoluble in ether, benzene. Solutions have a neutral reaction. pKa = 3.2. Molecular weight is 330.86.


Pharmacological action - local anesthetic.

Reduces the permeability of the lipid layer of the nerve cell membrane for sodium ions, inhibits membrane depolarization, increases the threshold of electrical excitability of nerve endings, prevents the occurrence of an action potential, blocks the perception and conduction of a nerve impulse along the fiber.

After instillation into the eye, it is rapidly absorbed through the conjunctival capillaries. It is hydrolyzed by plasma esterases, excreted by the kidneys in the form of inactive cleavage products. With a single instillation, the anesthetic effect is manifested after 30 seconds and remains for at least 15 minutes.

Long-term toxic effects are currently unknown. With prolonged use, it is possible to slow the healing of ophthalmic lesions.

Long-term animal studies to assess potential carcinogenic and mutagenic effects, effects on reproductive function and fertility have not been carried out.

Application of the substance Proxymetacaine

Local anesthesia in ophthalmology for diagnostic and treatment procedures requiring fast and short-term anesthesia: surgical intervention for cataracts, surgeries for suture removal from the cornea or conjunctiva; tonometry, gonioscopy; removal of a foreign body from the cornea; diagnostic scrapings with conjunctiva.



Update of information


Assign with caution to patients with allergic reactions, epilepsy, heart disease, hyperthyroidism and breathing disorders; patients with myasthenia gravis, patients with low acetylcholinesterase in plasma, as well as patients undergoing treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors (because they are more at risk of systemic adverse reactions).

Restrictions on the use

Pregnancy, breast-feeding, children's age (safety and effectiveness of use in children are not defined).

Application in pregnancy and lactation

When pregnancy is possible, if the expected effect during application exceeds the potential risk to the fetus (adequate and strictly controlled studies in humans have not been performed).

With caution in the period of breastfeeding (no data on penetration into breast milk).

Side effects of the substance Proxymethacaine

Itching, burning and congestion hyperemia (1-10%); irritation, tingling, burning, reddening of the cornea, lacrimation, increased blinking - after instillation, sometimes signs of local irritation or increased blinking may appear a few hours after instillation; allergic reactions, incl. contact (dermatitis, dryness and skin cracks at the fingertips), pupil dilated, cycloplegic effects, edema and erosion of the corneal epithelium, conjunctival hemorrhage.

In 0.1-1% of cases, immediately after instillation - severe reactions of the hyperallergic type (acute epithelial keratitis, necrosis of the epithelium, threadlike infiltrates of the cornea, iritis with descemetite).

With prolonged use - infection and / or opacity of the cornea, prolonged loss of vision; perforation of the cornea.

Systemic intoxication (0.01-0.1%) - is manifested by CNS excitation with its subsequent inhibition.


Treatment: Wash the excess preparation from the eye with warm water. When there are signs of systemic action - symptomatic treatment.

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Proxymethacaine

It is intended for local use only. Long-term use can cause persistent opacity of the cornea, accompanied by loss of vision. Use with caution in patients with a tendency to allergic reactions, with heart disease, with hyperthyroidism.

It is necessary during the entire period of anesthesia to protect the eye from the ingress of irritating chemicals and foreign bodies. Patients should be warned that you can not touch and rub the eye until the anesthetic effect passes (due to lack of sensitivity, damage may occur).
