I have reacted with migraine all three times at eye doctor when they dilated eyes. I specifically asked this new eye doc if it had gluten or wheat or anything that would cause me to react and explained I am highly sensitive. He assured me not..Well, guess what?? I could not see the road to drive home very well and got a horrible migraine by the time I got home with no relief until about 6:30am the following morning. If my meds do not help it, then it is a gluten sensitivity. I have learned that much. :( Just wondering if I am only "oddball?" Thanks!

Wouldn't make sense to put gluten in your eyes.

Bright lights are a migraine trigger. When your eyes are dialated, they are more susceptable to bright light. Your eyes can't close up to keep the light out like they usually do. You know how the black part in the middle is really big when they are dialated? When you are in the sun, the black part gets really small to keep the extra light out.

What she said!

I have Sjogren's Syndrome and get my eyes dilated once a year. Sjogren's makes you extremely light sensitive to begin with. I have to book my appointments late afternoon in the Fall, when it's dark by the time I get out of the docs or I would NEVER be able to drive home.

There is definitley no gluten at all in the dilating drops.
