how long will eyes stay dilated?

I saw a neurologist/opthamologist today and had my eyes dilated. This was at about noon. Pupils are still largely dilated almost 7 hours later. Is this normal?

yes.

it depends on what agent they used to dilate you, but 7 hrs is certainly not abnormal, especially if you have light blue or green eyes.

i wouldnt call them unless it lasts over 48 hrs.  even then its most likely not dangerous.
