The pupillary light reflex (PLR) test is the method of examining the immediate reaction of the pupil by light stimuli, and dysfunctions in autonomic nervous system can be evaluated quickly and easily through this method. Existing pupillary light reflex examinations utilize medical penlights to provide light stimuli at the pupil of the examined person,(More)
