DILATED FUNDUS EXAMINATION
Dilation enables the doctor to examine the eye for cataracts, glaucoma, and other conditions that may result in loss of vision. Early signs of diabetes, arteriosclerosis, and high blood pressure can be detected. In addition, the doctor can examine the retina for any holes, tears, detachments, or tumors.
In order to dilate the eyes, drops are instilled which widen the pupils within 15-20 minutes. Your vision, especially reading vision, may become blurred for about 4-6 hours. Dilation also has a tendency to make your eyes more sensitive to light, so disposable sunglasses are available to ease the glare from the sun.
