Dilation and Refraction

Dilation and refraction are often an important part of the examination process. Dilation is a routine part of eye exams that results in an increased sensitivity to light and reduced visual range. It lasts for a few hours, so patients with dilated eyes should not drive or operate heavy machinery until their vision has returned to normal.

In some cases, the doctor may state that a refraction is necessary to determine whether a medical condition is
responsible for your blurred vision. Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover this test,
so there may be a separate fee.
