In brief: May indicate trouble

Mydriasis, or dilated pupils, can be the result of toxicity (certain chemicals or medications accidentally coming in contact with the eye), injury (damage to the muscle of the iris), or neurological disease.
If it doesn't go away within hours, discovering the cause is important. Advisable to get checked by an eyemd.
