Dilated eye examination

Periodically, we may recommend a dilated eye examination. This allows us to get a much better view of the inside of your eye so we can perform a much more thorough check for eye disease.

For the dilated eye examination we need instil eye drops which after about 10 minutes, will cause your pupils to dilate.

The effects of this eye drop can take between 4 - 8 hours to wear off in most people, and during this time your pupils will remain dilated, even in bright sunshine.

For this reason we would normal advise that you do not drive a car afterwards and you want to bring sunglasses to wear outside.
