Purpose To determine the effects of age and sex on the amplitude and latency scores obtained by the RAPDx® pupillometer, and to determine the standard values for detecting relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD) in healthy subjects. Methods The study was conducted on 84 healthy subjects (52 males, 32 females), who had no ophthalmic diseases other than refractive errors with a mean age of 32 years. The amplitude and latency scores of the males were compared to that of females and also among… Expand
Evaluation of Relative Afferent Pupillary Defect Using RAPDx Device in Patients with Optic Nerve Disease
The amplitude and latency scores determined using RAPDx are useful in evaluating RAPD, particularly the standard value of the amplitude score, which showed a significant correlation with laterality-based differences in visual acuity and critical flicker fusion frequency values in the optic nerve disease group.

Quantification of RAPD by an automated pupillometer in asymmetric glaucoma and its correlation with manual pupillary assessment
The good correlation between the magnitude of RAPD, as measured by the automated pupillometer, and intereye differences in MD, CDR, and RNFL thickness in glaucomatous, and the good sensitivity and specificity when compared with the experienced ophthalmologist, suggest that pupillometry may be useful as a screening tool to assess asymmetric glAUcoma.

Efficacy of digital pupillometry for diagnosis of Horner syndrome
Digital pupillometry is an objective method for quantifying PLR and Baseline inter-eye difference in maximal pupil sizes and dilation lag measured by T75 was equally effective in the diagnosis of Horner syndrome compared to the reversal of anisocoria after apraclonidine instillation. Expand
Automated Pupillometry using a Prototype Binocular Optical Coherence Tomography System.
Binocular OCT-derived pupil parameters had excellent test-retest reliability and diagnostic accuracy and may provide an efficient method of objectively quantifying the pupil responses as OCT becomes ubiquitous. Expand
Evaluation of a Relative Afferent Pupillary Defect using the RAPDx® Device Before and After Treatment in Patients with Optic Nerve Disease
Both amplitude and latency scores in the RAPDx® device together with other ophthalmic examinations, before and after treatment, correlated with subjective examinations and were useful for evaluation of the efficacy of treatment. Expand
Pupillary light reflex in ethambutol-induced optic neuropathy
It is confirmed that pupillary constriction and dilation velocities were significantly decreased in patients with EMB-induced optic neuropathy, compared to normal controls. Expand
Relative Afferent Pupillary Defects in Homonymous Visual Field Defects Caused by Stroke of the Occipital Lobe Using Pupillometer
This study detected significantly smaller and slower pupillary light reflexes in the contralateral eyes than in the other eyes, which is equivalent to the presence of RAPD in patients with HVFDs caused by retrogeniculate lesions using an objective technique. Expand
Design of a Volumetric Imaging Sequence Using a Vantage-256 Ultrasound Research Platform Multiplexed With a 1024-Element Fully Sampled Matrix Array
This study has designed an imaging acquisition sequence that handles volumetric data efficiently using a single 256-channel Verasonics ultrasound research platform multiplexed with a 1024-element matrix array and the developed sequence has been applied for building an ultrasonic pupilometer.

Pupillographic evaluation of relative afferent pupillary defect in glaucoma patients
The log-scaled RAPD amplitudes correlated moderately with the differences in MD values, but the log- scaling RAPD latencies showed a weaker correlation. Expand
Symmetry of the pupillary light reflex and its relationship to retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and visual field defect.
As measured by this particular device, the PLR is strongly correlated with VF functional testing and measurements of RNFL thickness, and within-eye asymmetry of PLR between super onasal and inferonasal stimulation was not associated with corresponding within- eye differences in VF or RNFL. Expand
Detecting glaucoma using automated pupillography.
Although the pupillograph had a good ability to detect glaucoma in the presence of asymmetric disease, it performed poorly in those with symmetric disease. Expand
Long-term fluctuation of relative afferent pupillary defect in subjects with normal visual function.
Some normal subjects may show a persistent but small RAPD in the absence of detectable pathologic disease, and an isolated RAPS in the range of 0.3 log unit should probably be considered benign. Expand
Association between a relative afferent pupillary defect using pupillography and inner retinal atrophy in optic nerve disease
The results suggest that pupillography is useful for detecting optic nerve disease and among the relative afferent pupillary defect, central critical fusion frequency, ganglion cell complex thickness, and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.

Development and validation of an associative model for the detection of glaucoma using pupillography.
Using pupillography, the associative model developed and validated was able to discriminate among persons with glaucoma and those with normal eye examinations, and with refinement, pupil testing may provide a simple approach for glAUcoma screening. Expand
Variability of the relative afferent pupillary defect.
Computerized infrared pupillography can standardize the alternating light test and minimize the error in quantifying a relative afferent pupillary defect. Expand
Detection of asymmetric glaucomatous damage using automated pupillography, the swinging flashlight method and the magnified-assisted swinging flashlight method
Automated pupillography had higher sensitivity and lower specificity in detecting MD, CDR, DDLS, and RNFL asymmetry and within the bounds of the cohort tested, this method had limited case-finding ability. Expand

Good correlation between the magnitude of RAPD and intereye differences in mean deviation and estimated RGC counts suggests pupillometry may be useful for quantifying asymmetric damage in glaucoma. Expand

Targets of appropriate pattern, brightness, and contrast that select for cortical contributions to the pupil response may be useful for eliciting pupil defects in amblyopic patients. Expand
