how long for dilated eyes to return to normal?

How long until dilated eyes go back to normal?
ok so yesterday I went to the eye doctor and they put drops in my eyes that made them dilated. So yesterday when I put something close to my eyes like my hand or something it was blurry. So a day passed it's morning and my eyes are STILL dilated. And some things STILL appear to be blurry. How much longer do I have to wait for my eyes to go back to normal?

Most people return back to normal 4-6 hours later. Some people it does take longer to wear off. I've seen people stay dilated 24-48 hours. Don't worry about it. You will come back to normal. Sometimes the doctor will use a stronger drop which means a longer dilation. There are drops that will keep you dilated for up to 2 wks. I doubt if they used those on you though. Again, don't worry.

How long after eye dilation do eyes return to normal?
Many factors influence how long dilating drops remain active after instilled.
These include how "strong" a drop was used, how sensitive the patient is to the drop, color of the eyes (blue usually stay dilated longer), and other factors. Most dilating drops used for diagnostic purposes in the office wear off after 4-24 hours. Patients often are sensitive to light, and may have trouble reading.

How long does it take for eye dilation drops to wear off and normal vision to return?
The most commonly used drops take 2-4 hours to completely resolve.
There are reversal drops that can take some of the effect away.
