FIRST OF ALL I AM NOT A DOCTOR/OPHTHALMOLOGIST... OK

CYCLOPENTOLATE HYDROCHLORIDE SOLUTION - OPHTHALMIC

This medication is used before eye examinations (e.g. refraction exams). It belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics. Cyclopentolate works by temporarily widening (dilating) the pupil of the eye and relaxing the muscles of the eye.
Cyclopentolate Opht is used to treat the following:

Paralysis of the Ciliary Muscle of the Eye, Dilated Pupil, Dilated Pupils Before or After Surgery

I truly do not why they would prescribe this med for a viral infection contact your OPHTHALMOLOGIST ASAP.

I WISH YOU THE BEST
