Customer Question
Hi, I woke up...

Hi, I woke up this morning to dialated eyes and they were not constricting in the light. I guess I was just trying to find out if this is serious and either related to my eyes or something else.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

Its been about two years with just getting my eyes checked. I wear glasses for reading or when i feel they are strained. I always feel pressure on my eyes but i havent really felt that as much the last couple days. I have felt pressure in my eyes today but that maybe thats becauae they were dialated for a bit.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a history of migraines and lupus. I am on medication for lupus and that was the last thing i took this morning before I got up this morning. Im on Plaquenil and prednisone and took it at 6am this morning

They were like that for about an hour once i was awake. Once they started responding to the light I laid dow and fell asleep again. I woke up a fee hours later and the same thing happened. Now, hours later, are responding to light. My eyes do feel sore, like pressure and I have a headache.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
It coulda be your medications that are causing it but that’s rare. It doesn’t like anything serious, as in, nothing neurological. However it could be that your pupils are dilated due to the side effects of your medications and when you’re dilated it will cause you to have a lot of light sensitivity as well as headaches and pressure sensation.

Generally, with bilateral I dilation I am less concerned about your logic issues and it’s more safe side affect his medications.

It sounds as though this is a new and more recent situation for you. If it is something that you’ve had for a while then I would recommend having a dilated eye exam at the I doctors, however if it’s something new then it would be safe to wait it out.
