The drops they put in your eyes are probably dilating drops. These are used to open up the pupil so that the doctor could get a better look inside your eyes -- to make sure that everything was healthy. If we look in without dilating the eyes, we are restricted to view only about 30% of your eyes -- we would miss the rest.
Hope this helps and thank you.
But why have i got to go and see my own Doctor, is it the start of Glaumonco
The optician cannot make the diagnosis of glaucoma alone based on just the eye pressure. High pressure is just one risk factor for developing glaucoma. Other risk factors include family history, appearance of the optic nerve, visual fields testing, corneal thickness. All of these have to be taken into consideration before the diagnosis can be made. Some people with high pressures do not have glaucoma. Some people with normal pressures do have glaucoma. This can only be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
