You will need to have all your paperwork ready to fill out (AKC registration info, microchip or tattoo info). They give you the form there. The several clinics I've used will put drops in the dogs eyes, then have you fill out the info because it takes awhile for their eyes to dialate (15-20 minutes?). When they call you into the dark room, they use a couple of different methods to examine the eyes in depth, but it only takes a couple of minutes at most.
After the exam, your dogs eyes will remain dialated for several hours. I try to keep mine out of direct sunlight and get them into darker places for a while to sheild them from any discomfort, although I haven't noticed any yet.
We haven't had any vomiting or nausea - at least, not any that was noticeable.
