How long does eye dilation normally last?

My daughter is 3 and had her eyes dilated yesterday around 10am and they are still fairly dilated at 8am the next morning. At what point should I call the eye doctor?

  • Depends on the dialation drops. My son would stay dialted for well over 24 hours. But mind you, he was dialated every 2-6 weeks. Just keep the sun out of her eyes. If her eyes dont' show any signs of going down by this after, I would call and ask. Some kids eyes are just super sensitive to the drops
