I'm still supposed to get dilated yearly so they can check inside, a detached retina is apparently a very real possibility since my eye is so "long". They dilate me because otherwise it's like trying to look into a room thru a peephole - their words not mine.
I'm no eyexpert..
Get dilated, what does that mean? Do they alter the way your eye dilates, like changing its settings?
They put drops (don't know what of) into your eyes, causing the pupils to stay dilated for a little while. Gives the doc easy visual access into your eyeballs.
