Hi Brian, thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear the dilation drops caused such trouble following your appointment. I can appreciate how the extended period of blurred vision and light sensitivity can be frustrating. Unfortunately the computer equipment has it's own limitations. Many problems that an eye doctor might be looking for at the back of the eye can be either hard to assess (qualities such as elevation for example are hard to see), or difficult to find at all (such as pathology at the extremes of the retina or retinal concerns that require manipulation to find - such as scleral indentation in which we push from the outside of the eye to better evaluate certain findings) without dilation. As a result using computer equipment to image the back of your eye without including a dilation in your management could miss important findings. There is a place for imaging in optometry practice, and we use it everyday but a dilation is still a critical procedure, albeit a sometimes frustrating one. Hope this helps you understand why we put you through that process and I hope you reconsider our office for services in the future. If you have any further questions or concerns let us know. Dr.Roed
