Dilated Eyes in Kids

My son's eyes are dilated often and it's not from drugs. It seems his eyes are dilated during and after physical activity, as near as I can tell. He wears glasses and is complaining about his vision getting worse. He naps about every day after school or activity. His behavior is what I consider normal, he's mannered and active, but not hyper-active. He's not on drugs. He's not ADD or ADHD or any of that, though he was tested for it. Anyway, I am concerned about his eyes, with them being dilated, letting in light unnecessarily, I don't want him to go blind. It's gone unnoticed for too long now.
Any idea what it could be? What's wrong? And who should I take him to, an Optometrist or a Doctor? Any information would be helpful...
Thanks!!

Try getting him an eye exam first. Even if he can't help, the eye doctor will give you some ideas on where to go next.
