Don't worry . You must have developed an intraocular inflammation , and being treated for it.

One eye drop which you must be using will cause the pupils to dilate, causing discomfort while seeing the sun, but helps the inflammation to regress faster and reduces your pain. Once you stop the drops after your doctors review, you will be alright. Until then sunglasses is the only option.

Please confirm it with your eye specialist and hope you get better soon.

hello..there are chances of pupil persistant dilatation after injury..for that u may use pilocarpine 2% eye drops..only in the morning in the affected eye..the effect of the medicine stays for 8 if u put in morning then day will pass off..with the effect of medication..and u can avoid glare because of sun..
secondly ..u can use cosmetic contact lenses.. with limited pupil apurture...
thirdly u can use dark photochromatic/photosensor spectacles..
