The irriation may be a problem but the allergy drop was the likely cause of the pupil being dilated. These drops contain weak chemicals that constrict the blood vessels. The concentration is too low to usually get in the eye and dilated the pupil. However if the eye is irritated, scratched or in a contact lens wearing more chemical gets in the eye than normal. It should wear off over-night.

If the irritation continues and gets worse he should see an Eye MD.
