A complete ophthalmic examination requires evaluation of both the anterior and posterior segments. Thorough examination of the posterior segment requires pharmacologic dilation of the pupil. In many ophthalmic practices this is performed by the technician prior to the patient being seen by the physician. There are many neurologic disorders that can be diagnosed by observing abnormalities of pupil function. However, once the pupil is pharmacologically dilated, any ability to detect these disorders is lost. It is therefore critical that technicians be competent in their ability to perform a pupil examination. This class will provide a detailed review of pupil testing and how to recognize abnormalities. There will also be a discussion of the health significance of abnormalities once they are discovered.
