    When your eyes are dilated, it will be hard for you to see outside or in bright light, and it would allowing more sunlight coming into your eyes and even burn them. So it is better to wear sunglasses after your eyes are dilated.

    Yes. More sunlight including the harmful light will get into your eyes after dilation. Then it will cause damage to your eyes. To avoid this, you should wear protective glasses when you go outside.
