  • Anisocoria can occur as a result of injury (e.g. to the iris sphincter muscle), inflammation (e.g. iridocyclitis), diseases of the iris, paralysis of the third nerve, angle-closure glaucoma, systemic diseases (e.g. diabetes, syphilis) or accidental drug instillation into the eye (if the drug or substance has anticholinergic properties the condition is then referred to as anticholinergic mydriasis or 'atropine' mydriasis ).

  • Biperiden mimics an atropine intoxication with mydriasis, dryness of mucous membranes, red face, atonic states of bowels and bladder, and hyperthermia in high doses. (wikipedia.org)
  • nerve
  • To study the contribution of MRI (sequence FIESTA) in analysis of isolated, persistant and idiopathic mydriasis and to describe a new type of neurovascular conflict between Cranial Nerve III (CN III) and adjacent structures. (arvojournals.org)
  • single
  • Neither mydriasis nor three field photography improved the sensitivity or specificity for the detection of any retinopathy or of referable retinopathy when compared with undilated single field photography. (bmj.com)
  • The Health Technology Board has advised mydriasis only when undilated photography has failed and recommend the use of a single 45° field centred on the macula. (bmj.com)
  • They presented with a single non reactive, isolated and persistent mydriasis with a negative pilocarpine diluted-test. (arvojournals.org)
  • Multiple
  • It was unclear whether multiple fields, or the use of mydriasis, was the important criterion resulting in improved sensitivity. (bmj.com)
