In brief: Dilation
As a common part of the vision evaluation, the pupil may need dilation with eyedrops to allow a better view of the back of the eye.
This causes some disturbance of the vision including difficulty focusing and blur from the enlarged pupil. All of this will disappear by the next day as the pupil normalizes.
