Do I really need to get my eyes dilated?
I have avoided letting the doctor dilate my eyes in my annual exam for the past three years. The reason is that I can't go back to work with dilated eyes and be productive. What is the purpose of having the eyes dilated, and am I doing myself a disservice by refusing to let the doctor dilate? Has technology improved in other areas so that dilating is no longer an absolute necessity? I am worried that I let it go for so long.
