Will I need someone to drive me home after an IOL test?
Most of the testing for the proper IOL is easy and would probably not produce a problem for you to drive after the tests have been completed. Rarely, a person might be uncomfortable or blurred after these tests. I suggest you arrange for a driver if you are sensitive to lights, uncomfortable driving while your pupil is dilated, or otherwise concerned about driving safety.
