Dear Mosie54,

I would recommend that you get your eyes checked to determine the cause of the dilation.  You do not mention whether it is one eye or both. It can be as simple as placement of a longer acting drop or as serious as a nerve problem in your brain.  Please go to AAO.org and find an EyeMD and see a doctor where you are visiting.
