If you are going to be dilating, it is recommended that you 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. Due to these drops having side effects such as increased light sensitivity, blurred vision at near, and blurred vision at distance, it may be a good idea to bring someone with you to your appointment.
We also offer a unique exam option called “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 our staff for more information if you have any questions.
