It is recommended if a patient is dilating, to bring someone else to drive you home. Dilating your eyes is an important part of a complete eye exam to check the health of the back of your eyes. Dilation is done by putting specialized drops in patient’s eye that widen your pupil for a short period of time. These drops have side effects such as increased light sensitivity, blurred vision at near, and in some cases blurred vision at distance.
At our office we offer a unique option of Optos, which will take a photo of the back of your eye without the side effects of a dilation. This is a good option for someone who does not wish to dilate or cannot dilate at the time of examination. Ask the eye doctor for more information if you have any questions.
