Usually: Before dilation, most eye doctors will evaluate the front part of your eye to see if you are at risk for angle closure, and check your eye pressure at that point. There are times, though, when we recheck pressure following dilation to see if it changes, and in a low risk patient (e.g. Not at risk for angle closure), it is not unreasonable to check after dilation.
