WHAT’S A DILATED EYE EXAM?

Drops are placed in your eyes to dliate, or widen, the pupils. Dr. Davies then uses a special magnifying lens to examine your retina to look for signs of damage and other eye problems, such as diabetic retinopathy or age-related macular degeneration. He can also check for damage to the optic nerve that occurs when a person has glaucoma.
