Tonic pupil

Introduction: Tonic pupil

Description of Tonic pupil

Tonic pupil: A condition where one pupil reacts slower to a stimulus such as light or change in distance than the other. Also called Adie's pupil.

Tonic pupil: A pupillary abnormality characterized by a poor pupillary light reaction, reduced accommodation, iris sector palsies, an enhanced pupillary response to near effort that results in a prolonged, "tonic" constriction, and slow pupillary redilation. This condition is associated with injury to the postganglionic parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. (From Miller et al., Clinical Neuro-Ophthalmology, 4th ed, pp492-500)
