The examiner should note the shape (round or oblong) and size of the pupils. Normal pupils are generally of equal size and react equally to light. Inequality of the pupils is called anisocoria; a small degree of anisocoria is normal in some individuals. When the examiner illuminates the pupil of one eye, there should be reflex constriction of that pupil (the direct light response), accompanied by an equal reflex constriction of the other pupil (the consensual light response). To ensure that only one pupil is illuminated, the examiner shines a flashlight on one eye while blocking the light from the other eye with his or her own hand, held in the midline over the root of the patient’s nose.
