In this study, the interexaminer variability in pupillary measurements using the manual examination as compared with a portable automated pupillometer was critically examined and quantified.
Automation of the pupillary assessment using an automated pupillometer (NPi-200; NeurOptics,) offers a potential solution to this important clinical problem.
One promising study has shown that the existence of blindsight in patients with cortical vision loss can often be predicted by observing subtle pupil size changes (as measured using a pupillometer) in response to the presentation of isoluminant gratings in the blind field.
(1) Although physical examination of PLR is the usual method of evaluation, use of a device called a pupillometer offers more diagnostic sensitivity than physical examination alone.
The dilated pupil size was at least 6 mm, measured using a Haab's pupillometer. Standard digital fundus photography for the central fundus was performed for all subjects by the same observer.
