Would it matter if i went to an eye exam with my pupils already dialated?

i was told to take adderall by my doctor, but it dialates my pupils. i am going to have an exam for contacts tomorrow, would it affect the exam result?

    Of course it will make difference . There should be a part in the eye exam that assesses how your pupils changes to light and accommodation.If your eyes are dilated, the doctor cannot assess these problems correctly and can have error in telling your eyes condition. So, these tests should be performed before your eyes are dialated or you should stop taking addrall before the tests.

    Before the exam ,you should tell the doctor you have been taking addrall.It is possible that they will be able to examine your eyes without any further dilation.
