Brief Answer:
Yes, very safe!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

It is entirely safe to get your eyes dilated more than once in a week. If necessary, it may be dilated twice in a day if the first dilation was not enough for a complete evaluation. There is no risk in doing so and you should not be too worried about this.

I hope you find this helpful. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
