name change[edit]

is not pupil dilation the increase in a pupil and pupillary response then, which from this article in itself i take it that means a category including contraction and dilation of the pupil, does not refer to the same thing as pupil dilation in the English language?Makeswell (talk) 15:51, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

You're right, changed the name back to "pupillary response". --❨Ṩtruthious andersnatch❩ 00:56, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

pupil dilation[edit]

Here's a source you can read directly: Women's pupillary responses to sexually significant others during the hormonal cycle --❨Ṩtruthious andersnatch❩ 19:30, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

separate article from mydriasis?[edit]

I put the phrase "pupil dilation" into the search field and was directed here, but really I was trying to remember the term mydriasis. That is a mature article, so what is the purpose of this one? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:32, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Did you read that page? The first line is "Mydriasis is an excessive dilation of the pupil due to disease, trauma or the use of drugs." That's a very specific kind of pupillary response, this page is about the topic in general. --❨Ṩtruthious andersnatch❩ 00:56, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Combine with Pupil article?[edit]

This article is categorized as a stub. It could not be expanded much without starting to duplicate Mydriasis, but it could become a section in Pupil, to which this article's title would then redirect. Would such a combination be better than continued stubbiness? Ornithikos (talk) 04:52, 22 July 2011 (UTC)


I wonder if this article could be combined with pupillary light reflex? --Hordaland (talk) 21:16, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
