Abstract

The relationship between pupil size and perimetric sensitivity was investigated in a group of clinically normal emmetropic subjects using the Dicon AP3000 computer-assisted perimeter at bowl luminances of 10 asb and 45 asb. Pupil size was modified with the miotic thymoxamine 0.5% and the mydriatic phenylephrine 10%; saline was used as the control. Perimetric sensitivity increased with an increase in pupil size. The effect was greatest for peripheral locations for both bowl luminances. The fluctuations in perimetric sensitivity increased with peripheral angle and with decrease in pupil size for both bowl luminances.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
