Pupillometry is the measurement of the size and dilation of a person’s pupils. This measurement is then converted into information that can help diagnose many different neurological problems. When a person is under heightened mental or physical stimulation, their pupils will dilate.
Nowadays, doctors can use this technology in a neuro exam. The pupilometer is the device used in pupillometry. This tool helps them look at the eye’s pupil size, constriction rate, and reaction time. By interpreting these parameters, they can determine if there’s something wrong with the patient’s brain.
In this article, we’ll be looking at the pupilometer and its relevance to diagnosing neurological diseases.
