Twenty four patients with retinal pigment dystrophy were subjected to examination of pupillary reaction. Evaluated was the amplitude of pupillary reaction on a standard light flash. The results received were compared with the field changes. It was noted that the amplitude is diminished depending on the changes in the visual field.
Presented are the results of a 3 years long observation of the pupillary reaction in patients with pigmentary retinal dystrophy who have been subjected to a complex treatment. The authors discovered a consistency between the changes in the visual field and the amplitude of the pupillary reaction.
The pupillary diameter was checked in illumination of various intensity in 20 patients with unilateral retinal detachment. The healthy and the diseased eye were examined separately. The authors discovered a latent anisocoria the amount of which was dependent on the condition of the macular area and on the extent of the detachment.
