Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

Though i believe an ophthalmologist is a good idea, you may want to start with her primary pediatrician. It is possible the may have been something that she inadvertently inhaled that caused her pupils to dilate, considering she hasn't taken anything by mouth. A thorough history and exam by her primary doctor may give a clue as to what happened. At that point, it can be determined what the best mode of action is.
