We did this to try to help the symptom of photophobia, but for some people it can also help imporve acuity a little and of course the cosmetic improvement.
Maybe worth a chat with your eye doctor, see what the options are for you.
In my case, I had a choice of a permanently dilated pupil or one permanemtly at 4mm.
Best wishes
Laura, I have a permentantly dialated pupil and am interested in the pupilloplasty, where did you go to have it done? Do you need any drops or meds or was it just a one time thing? Thanks
