Pupil Dilation for eye examination

My daughter is 4 years old. According to Doctor's advice  we  gave her Isopto Atropine 1%  1 drop twice for 3 days (April 24 to April 26, 2010) . Her last drop was on 10 p.m. April 26 2010. April 27 , 2010 she had eye examination. Today is April 28, still now she can not read big letters too. She can watch TV but she can not read anything. She was not like that before. I asked dr during examination. He said it is normal. It may take couple of days.Please advice

Thanks Dr Ray. My daughter's condition is not improving at all. It is almost 58 hours since I gave medicine last time. Is the effect from the medicine? My daughter is very upset as she can not read.
