Question:
My son had an eye exam and when his eyes were dilated he had no peripheral vision from his midline down on his right eye. What are possible causes?

Answer:
Pupillary dilation would not cause such localized symptoms in the visual field. How long did the symptoms last and were there associated symptoms? It would be best to visit your local ophthalmologist to get this diagnosed further.
