What is it for?

Measuring your pupil size in dim lighting.

 

When is this done?

Initial screening.

 

What actually happens?

You will be positioned with both eyes viewing a spot light source through the padded eyepieces. The

technician will then measure the size of each pupil over a 2 second period using an infrared camera in three different light levels.

 

How does it feel?

You feel nothing as the instrument does not make contact with your eye.

 

What does it do?

The pupillometer measures the average pupil size, variation in pupil size over a fixed time frame, and

difference in pupil size between the two eyes in three different light levels.

 

How does it benefit you?

Like all measurements in laser eye surgery accuracy is important. Accurate pupil size measurements for dark and dim lighting conditions allows the surgeon to optimise your treatment plan so that he or she can minimize the risk of inducing night vision changes such as halos and starbursts around lights. Not all pupillometers are accuate. Some lasers have better capabilities of minimizing these risks than others.
