Dilated eyes

Is there some condition know that makes the eyes stay dilated 100% of the time. They have already checked diabetes, STD test, performed eye exams & everything is coming up negative. I do have adult asthma & they had origionally thought maybe the medication had caused the condition but even changing RX didn't make a difference. They have now been dilated over a year & stay like that all the time & I have to wear sunglasses even in doors & can't spend a lot of time outside because I can't find glasses dark enough or that cover the entire eye area. Any ideas or additional test that should be considered.

The most common condition that causes fixed dilated pupils all the time is death.

You should see a neuro-ophthalmologist to do a series of pupil tests to determine a cause, if it's anything other than having extremely large pupils (pupils are the largest in adolescents and young adults).
