Based on about 60 hours of observation of these mice, the investigators "trained" a deep learning algorithm to recognize abnormal pupillary patterns.
Automation of the pupillary assessment using an automated pupillometer (NPi-200; NeurOptics,) offers a potential solution to this important clinical problem.
Some authors believe that immediate administration of steroids at the onset of an attack might reduce permanent sequelae of OM, including residual weakness of the third cranial nerve and pupillary dysfunction (7).
Aberrations in the values of biometric factors such as lower anterior chamber depth (ACD), lower pupillary diameter (PD) and higher lens thickness (LT) point to zonular apparatus instability, presence of synechiae, forward lens migration and increased mobility of the lens or intraocular artificial lens implant (13,15).

The objective of this study was to measure the pupil dilation of Boer + No Defined Racial Pattern (NDRP) in crossbred goats submitted to different temperatures in the climatic chamber, to correlate pupillary dilatation with the physiological responses and to establish patterns of variation with the thermal stress.
So in right light, when pupil is small the IOL distributes the light energy equally between distance and near far sight, whereas in dim light situation, when the pupillary size increases less light is directed to near focus and more for distant focus.
On performing an examination, he had proptosis, periorbital puffiness, dilated episcleral vessels, sluggish pupillary reflex, external ophthalmoplegia, and diminished vision.
The functional status of these structures (optic nerve, mesencephalon, spinal cord, oculomotor nerve, cervical sympathetic fibers, and pupillary muscles) is evaluated by the pupillary light response (PLR).
The study, published in the journal Nature Communications, saw them investigate the pupillary light reflex - a basic mechanism controlling the amount of light that reaches the retina in which the pupil contracts when the eye is exposed to sudden increases in brightness.
The levator palpebrae superioris, pupillary sphincter muscle, and four extraocular muscles (the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, and inferior oblique muscles) are innervated by the oculomotor nerve.
The PRO line with its dual screens and military grade, ultra-precise head tracking connects with the AlterSpace Virtual Environment Engine to accurately simulate any experience or setting featuring a 130 degree field of view, adjustable focus and adjustable inter pupillary distance.
