What is a dilated eye exam?

This video helps explain why a dilated retinal exam should be part of every medical eye exam.  Dilating the pupil allows a much better view of the retina or back of the eye.  This can help detect deseases like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, and macula degeneration.  It also helps to detect problems like retinal holes or tears that can sometimes be easily treated before they cause you to lose vision.
