dialated pupil

yesterday my husbands eye was irritated like a minor scratch, the outside corner of his eye was red, so he used allergy eye drops and has used them a good bit today, now his one eye is dialated alot more than his other eye. what caused the dialation? is this a major problem? i don't think it hurts like a pain hurt, just irritated.

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.
