How often do you recommend to exam the back of the ye/retina with those drops than make the pupilla expand?
Male, 30y, astigmatism 160 deg, -4.5dpt stable since 5 years, no acute symptoms

Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : Generally speaking, and less you have had problems with the retina, such as retinal holes tears or breaks, or you have significant eye disease such as glaucoma, you cannot have to have regular examinations at your age. As long as you have had a 1 to 2 normal complete full dilated eye exams in your middle adulthood, this is sufficient. Does this make sense?
Customer: So no routine exam ofthis once ayear orvso?
