Local anesthesia: To examine your eyes pain-free, anesthetic eye drops are instilled in the eye to perform a more detailed exam of the cornea and to measure eye pressure. If the ophthalmologist needs a complete view of the inside of the eye, another eye drop will be instilled in the eye to keep your pupils well dilated.
