My eyes are very strained and tense. In the eyes exam, I couldn't focus my eyes and things kept on popping up and then disappearing, which obviously made the eye exam impossible. My Clinical Optometrist says that it's reflected in the eye exam as a higher prescription than what I really need. She claims that by conducting eye-tests for prescription glasses after dilating the pupils and numbing (paralyising the eye muscles-I guess the focus muscles) she could reveal the "true" prescription. Her reasoning is that pupil dilation enlarges and relaxes the muscles that make the pupil constrict as well as relax the muscles that focus the lens of the eye, and makes it numb. She concludes, that the focus muscles are in a neutral state and doesn't affect the test results.
What's your take on that ? and then I have a follow up if you don't mind.
thank you very much in advance.
