Pupil Dilation

So, I went to get my eyes checked, the doctor put in some drops to dilate the pupil. I have sunglasses on, but whenever I take them off they burn. My eyes burn, it's been about 6 hours since then. My mom also had her eyes dilated over 2 years ago, but every time now her eyes burn. I don't want that to happen to myself. Please answer, is it a side effect or why do my eyes burn whenever I take off my sunglasses?

It should get better.  Your mom's experience is not usual. It is not related to the dilating drops.
