Most new patient examinations and all annual examinations will include dilation. Dilation will last approximately 3 to 5 hours. Most patients feel comfortable driving when they are dilated, however your eyes will be more sensitive to light and your near vision will not be clear. If you have sunglasses, bring them to your exam, otherwise we will provide disposable shades. If you do not feel comfortable driving when dilated, you should bring a driver with you.
