Pupil Dilation

Our office routinely dilates every patient to achieve the most comprehensive evaluation of the health of your eyes. Whether pupil dilation is necessary for every eye exam depends on the reason for your exam, your overall health and your risk of eye disease.

Dilating the pupils may cause temporary blurring of your vision. We advise that you exercise caution in operating any equipment or machinery, including driving, until the effects have worn off.

If you refuse to have your eyes dilated, you understand that you are assuming all risks associated with failure to diagnose eye conditions due to lack of information, which may have been provided by this test.
