I just got my medical records, and I'm wondering about the size of my pupils. According to the chart I was at 3 in bright light and 6 in dim light and the zone was 7.

Forget about the bright measurement. What you should be concerned with is the dim/dark measurement.

Tell me exactly what kind of report you are looking at that says "the zone was 7".

Were your pupils measured in a dark (not dim) room? What device was used to measure them (this is very important)? How long did they allow you to dark adapt before taking the measurement? Were both eyes opened as each pupil was measured? Were you asked to look at an object at the far side of the room as the measurement was taken, or were you looking at the person doing the test and/or the object he/she was using? I need details.

There is a right way and wrong way to measure pupils. Mine were measured THE WRONG WAY! :roll:

My pupils were measured at 7.5mm and it is easy to take a picture with a digital camera of my pupils over 8mm. Just sitting in dim light holding a ruler under my eye.... a friend with a tripod and a camera.

I would encourage more patients to do this. Once doctors know we can they will be more motivated to take more accurate dim light pupil measurements.
