Welcome to the "dilated pupils" club! Interestingly, last Thursday I had to drive my wife to/from an I exam where we knew this would be done. No need to explain why!

I first experienced this in real life (i.e., when I was a doing chemistry). Those of us that worked with LASERS had to have an annual exam to see what, if any, damage had been done. The company wanted us to go after work. We (led by me) said - no way - we need someone to drive us to/from the doctor during work hours. Made into a safety issue, they had to concede. This was necessary even after the 'antidote' to the dilation is given - it just makes it impossible to see in the light.

Note: the dilation is done with curare - that famous ingredient in deadly poison darts.
