In brief: Retina

To be able to check the back of the eye, the pupils if not dilated will be too small , with dilation the doctor will be able to have a better view of the retina and make sure that it looks normal.

In brief: Check the health

Dilation of the pupil allows the doctor to see the internal structures of the eye.
This is essential for the diagnosis and treatment of many eye conditions.
