In brief: Not always

If you are referring to having your eyes dilated with drops in the ophthalmologist's office, this is generally safe, except when you have "narrow angles.
" this can be determined by your eye md. If your pupil spontaneously dilates, this can be a sign of a problem in the brain (tumor, aneurysm, etc) and should be evaluated right away by an ophthalmologist.
