Mydriasis allows the detailed examination of the posterior segment of the eye, fundoscopy, imaging of the fundus, and diagnostic examinations such as fluorescein angiography and indocyanine angiography.
What does mydriasis cause?
The administration of mydriatics (dilating drops) causes temporary blurry vision, which is more prominent when reading or performing activities in a close distance. At the same time, as more light enters the eye, the patient experiences photosensitivity and vision impairment.
These symptoms usually last for approximately four hours after the examination.
