Is It Safe To Watch A Movie After Getting My Eyes Dilated

Yes, but: If you are nearsighted you can see the movie fairly clear with your glasses. If farsighted, it may be blurry even with your glasses. In either case it will not cause any harm to your eyes other than bothering you for the blurriness.

Can sunglasses be bad for my eyes? Is it better to have darker-colored lenses or higher uv protection (or both)? I heard that darker sunglasses cause the pupil to dilate more, which makes your eyes more vulnerable to uv rays. Is this true? Should I get li
Ultraviolet: Ultraviolet (uv) light is harmful to the eyes, especially large amounts over long periods of time. In the United States, all sunglasses are required to block a very large percentage of the uv rays. The darkness of the sunglasses does not affect the uv filtering ability, since uv light is invisible and the uv blockers are clear. It is true that darker the sunglasses will open the pupil more and thus let in more uv light, but since almost all of it is being filtered by the sunglasses, this is not something to worry about. The exception would be specific eye diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa, in which extra high uv protection is a good idea.See 1 more doctor answer
Ever since I had my eyes dilated I get awful migraines when it's bright out or when I lay down at night, 18 and girl. Why is that exactly?
Can't see as far as I should. Do they dilate your eyes everytime you go in for glasses? How bad is the pain? How do you get over reflex to close eyes?
No: Discomfort might last for a few hours, but damage from these low light activities- very unlikey.. Do not stare at sun or at any very bright light source.
Drugs never made me feel different. I get the racing heartbeat, dilated eyes, after effects but no feeling happy, hallucinations; is something wrong?
Perhaps your body: Is telling you something. Recreational drugs can be fun, but they are bad for you. If you don't even have a "happy" time, why bother? Go find a healthy way to have a "happy."

"Post-mydriatic": Mydriasis is pupillary dilation and without pupillary constriction, bright lights can dazzle you or even cause a temporary bleaching of the retina. Pharmacologic dilation for diagnostic testing and examination can last 3 or more hours, depending on the drops used and the color of your eyes, with lighter colors lasting longer. The near vision is typically more impaired than the distance.See 1 more doctor answer
