Yes: Dilating drops are thought to reduce the pain of iritis, but they are not necessary for treatment as long as you are using some anti-inflammatory eye drops like prednisolone.

Iritis is not: Healed by dilating drops. It usually accompanies a rheumatic disease but can occur by itself. Initial therapy is with steroid eye drops, and in severe cases my need drugs such as Humira! It may l;ead to glaucoma, so it is not a trvial disease! Good luck.
