What Does Dilating Your Eyes Do ?

I don't know what dilating my eyes does when I am having an eye exam. Is there anyone can tell me?

    Doctors often do this to patients because they want to check the eyes and look for some signs of diseases or infections. They need to dilate the pupils of the patients then they can find that. So don't worry or curious about it anymore. It is just a common exam procedure.

    Dear friend, eye doctors might do this to any patients. The dilation of the pupils can help the doctor to diagnose potential diseases or infections when he is checking our eyes in this way. I just have my eyesight checked yesterday. But how often the doctor dilates our eyes may depend on the doctor.
