About dilated eye exam
Regardless of symptoms or age, all new patients will have a dilated eye exam. Dilation allows the doctor to see all parts of the eye to detect diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. Comprehensive eye exam may take up to 2 hours. Please allow ample time for your visit.
Dilation may last from 3 to 6 hours for adults and up to 24 hours for children. You may experience excessive brightness outside and sometimes difficulty with near vision. Most patients experience little difficulty with driving after the exam; however, we recommend that you bring another driver if able. If you choose to drive on your own, please bring your sunglasses for comfort.
