Question about retina damage

the question I have is what does dilating eye do to help heal the eye. I went a retina specialist after being referred by an optometrist due to trauma I had on my left eye. As a result of the trauma to my left eye I have retina damage and macular damage. the doctor said that there a chance of vision recovery in my left eye due to health blood flow in that eye and prescribed me steroids eye drops that I take 4 times a day and eye drops to dilate the left eye 2 times a day. A check up will be done In one week to check on the progress.

I know I should be asking these question to my doctor but I missed this question. I will be calling my doctor tomorrow to ask more questions
