Eye injections are typically performed after the pupils are dilated. If your pupils were dilated prior to injection, it is not unusual for the pupils to remain dilated for 24-36 hours after your visit. Anesthetic eye drops and, sometimes, anesthetic injections are used to numb the eye to maximize comfort. Antiseptic is also applied before the injection to reduce the chance of infection.
We strongly urge you to have a driver to transport you because your vision will be impaired.
