Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Hi, I will be having Eye Exam on March 23. This Eye Clinic is new to me and is under my Medical Health Plan, but I am told by the Office when they use a Mydriatic to dilate eyes for examination, they do not reverse it and they do not keep this agent in the Office. From previous eye exams I have had, I always required and received a reversal agent. But if I do not receive it, my usual reaction is that the dilation lasts for "hours" up to 8 long hrs, I get headaches, and basically feel lousy all day. If I do get a reversal agent for the Mydriatic, then I immediately feel better. What do I need to do without paying and going to another Opthalmologist and paying out-of-pocket.
I believe rev-eyes (dapiprazole) has been discontinued by the manufacturer
In any event, it does not last as long as the drops used to dilated your eyes, it is expensive and had a short shelf life once reconstituted. Due to this many ophthalmologists stopped using it.
You could ask the doctor to give you a drop or Pilocarpine 2%. That might bring your pupil done some, although it can cause a brow ache.
Does this make sense to you?
