    Frequently Asked Questions on Dilation

    1. Why do we need to dilate your eyes before retinal photography?

    Dilating the pupils by instilling dilation eye drops enlarges your eye pupil size, allowing us to have a better view of the retina (located at the back of the eye). This is important as it improves the quality of the retinal images needed for this study. 

    2. How long does it take for the eyes to dilate and how long does the dilation effect last?

    It will take about 15-20 minutes for the pupils to be dilated. On average, it takes about 4-6 hours for your eyes to return to normal.

    3. What are the possible side effects of eye dilation?
    • Once your eyes are dilated, your vision will be blurred and you will have increased sensitivity to bright lights for about 4 hours. As a result, you be more prone to slipping, falling, moving unsteadily, etc.
    • You may experience mild local allergic reactions (i.e. rashes, redness of eye, itch).
    • There is a very small risk of acute angle closure glaucoma (an acute rise in eye pressure), estimated to occur in less than 1 in 5000 people. An eye pressure or shadow light test will be done to assess the risk before instilling eye drops. Dilating eye drops will not be used on patients who are at risk of developing acute angle closure glaucoma.
    4. Can we opt to take retinal photographs without dilation?

    You may opt to take retinal photographs without dilation; however, the quality of the photographs may not be usable.

    5. Can I wear contact lens to the retinal eye screening?

    If you are participating in the eye screening, please wear glasses on the screening day as the dilating drops will interfere with the contact lens.
