A 59-year-old male asked:

Isn't there an added drop, after the dilation drop, that will decrease the adjustment waiting period following a routine eye exam? what is it called?

RevEyes: Nobody uses it anymore. It can give you a bad headache. Just let the drops wear off on their own.

Dilated pupils: There was a drop called 'rev-eyes' that would help reverse pupil dilation. I'm not sure if it's available anymore since it burned a lot and wasn't that effective. One alternative is to ask your eye doctor to use weaker strength dilating drops at your exams. Sometimes those will wear off more quickly.
