Customer Question
I am 55 years old...
I am 55 years old. I do not smoke, drink, or do drugs. About 2 months ago I noticed my pupils do not react to light. They stay small at all times. What could be causing this?

hi

it is very difficult to evaluate your own pupils,whether they are reacting to light.Did you do it yourself ,or did you ask someone else to do it?

do you have any problems in vision associated with this?any headache?blurring or double vision?

I had my eyes examined by an eye doctor. She said you are right your eyes are not reacting. I have an apt with a opthalmologist this friday. No headaches, or blurred vision.
