Is it normal for one eye's pupil to be more dilated like 3 hours after you've visted the ophthalmologist (who dilated the eyes with drops)?

I visted the ophthalmologist for my monocular diplopia and he put on some liquid in my eyes to dilate them and he's checked them there and said they were fine. It's now been like 3 hours since my visit and one of my eyes is now definitely more dilated than the other. Is this cause for concern or is it a normal side effect of that dilating liquid?

    It's normal. it may even be tomorrow morning before they are both normal again. My pupils always stay dilated about 18 hours.....
