During Your Appointment

  • You will probably have dilating drops placed in your eyes. This may cause some light sensitivity and blur, especially with close-up vision. Although most patients are able to drive a car after dilation, some find it difficult and prefer to be accompanied by a driver.
  • It takes some time for dilating drops to work or special studies to be done, so please be prepared to be at our office for up to 1.5 to 2 hours for a complete exam.
