What is dilation?

As part of your care, we will assess your entire ocular health and system which will include dilation when warranted. Optometrists dilate your pupils to get a clear view of your optic nerve and retina, and to assist in diagnosing conditions high blood pressure, diabetes, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Dilation makes your eyes more sensitive to light, and we recognize this can affect your ability to drive and work. While dilation is an important part of your eye exam, it may not be necessary every year. If dilation is an inconvenience for you, please ask your doctor about Optos, imaging technology that allows your doctor to see the back of your eyes in just a few minutes without the need to dilate your pupils.
