In brief: They should be fine

Dilating eye drops (mydriatics) are usually quite sufficient to dilate the pupil wide enough for funduscopic evaluation.
With the aide of diagnostic ophthalmic lenses, both direct (contact) ; indirect (non contact), almost the entire retina can visualized under high magnification.
