    Definitely uneven eyes dilated is not good.Doctors often use eye drops to dilate the pupils so that they can see the eye in better detail for eye examinations. However there are lots of side effects ,so let me name a few. Firstly,dilating drops usually make the eyes sting for a few seconds . The stinging can last for several minutes in patients with sensitive eyes. The drops cause small blood vessels to tighten, which can result in a temporary whitening of the skin around the eyes. Blurred vision is also connected.Your eyes may also water, itch or turn red, though these side effects usually resolve themselves shortly. Secondly,Some pupil-dilating drops can cause skin-related side effects. On top of that,internal side effects following the use of pupil-dilating eye drops are typically minor and resolve on their own, but always inform your doctor or seek medical attention if you experience internal side effects following eye drop use.

    Well, it seems that you are very interested in this particular phenomenon. So, you should know that our eyes will be dilated when we are panicked, or frightened by something unexpected or horrible. And sometimes before an eye exam, the doctor will apply some eye drops to dilate our eyes. Anyway, there are simply no side effects if our eyes are not constantly dilated.

    Well, for dilated pupils, it is kind of annoying. So maybe you just want to know why it can occur to you. Generally speaking, the anxiety and the high blood pressure are the most common factors which can lead to dilated pupils. When you get dilated pupils, it will make your pupils bigger than normal one, and also, your eyes will feel blurred. So that can be very dangerous. In some cases, it also makes your eyes red.
