blurriness from cyclopentolate

Hi.  I was recently treated for iritis.  In addition to steroid drops (1 every waking hour) I was using cyclopentolate once in the morning and once at night for 13 days.  I stopped on Tuesday night.  It is now Friday afternoon and my iris is no longer dilated but my vision is still blurry.  Is this normal?

It can takes days for the pupil to return to normal.

Thanks for your reply Dr. O.  My pupil went back down to its regular size within a day after stopping cyclopentolate.  My eye is still blurry though.  I have been off of cyclopentolate for almost a week now.  Should I be concerned that my vision is still blurred?
