You are not alone.  Some of my patients are very sensitive to dilating drops and let me know all about it.  For them, I sometimes won't dilate their eyes and if I absolutely have to dilate their eyes, I will dilute the drops and use the weakest formulation possible.

Just wait  and drops will wear off in 1 or 2 days at most.  You can ask office  to give you dilation reversal drops as well.  You will get better.  IF you are having pain, headache and vision loss, you need to go back to your doctor immediatly to rule out acute glaucoma.
