  Purpose
Pupillary dilation to perform a fundus in premature newborns and neonates is often difficult to obtain, because of the non mature iris sphincter. The fundus is essential to detect retinal anomalies (as retinopathy of prematurity or chorioretinal or disk anomalies). The aim of the study is to obtain a satisfactory degree of mydriasis with a minimal dose of two mydriatic treatments, with an optimal duration and a good tolerance of the drugs. The study will evaluate the mydriasis in premature newborns, neonates and infants justifying a mydriasis for a bilateral diagnosis fundus, using ophthalmic insert Mydriasert® versus reference treatment (association of phenylephrine and tropicamide eyedrops). Ophthalmic insert Mydriasert® can control drug dispensation and decrease the number of nurse interventions to obtain mydriasis in patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mydriasis larger than 5,5 mm with absence of photometer reflex to get a satisfactory fundus. [ Time Frame: 75 minutes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of the nurse intervention to obtain the mydriasis [ Time Frame: during 215 minutes maximum ]
  • Calculation of the dose of active drugs administrated [ Time Frame: one day ]
  • Local and systemic clinical tolerance [ Time Frame: one day ]
  • Occurrence of adverse reactions [ Time Frame: one day ]
  • Stability of a mydriasis of good quality at T+195 [ Time Frame: at T+195 minutes ]
