In brief: No
Dilation of the eye allows for the opening of your pupil to get larger and then allows the doc to see into your eye and look at the lens, vitreous, retina, optic nerve.
The eye muscles are on the outside of the eyes and underneath the white conjunctival skin. They can be best seen on ct scan or mri.
