During the retina exam, we will evaluate your visual acuity and check the functions of your retina. Your eyes will be dilated, making it difficult to read and increasing your light sensitivity for several hours afterward.
If you require corrective lenses or medicine for any eye disease, you will be given a prescription. In some cases, the patient may be referred to a Retinal Specialist for further evaluation.

- Your eyes will be dilated, and you may need someone to drive you home.
