Customer Question

I'm epileptic and am currently not on any medications. My husband tells me often that out of the blue my eyes will dilate. Is this due to electoral changes in my brain? Focal point seizures?

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Eyes dilate when there is change in light amount entering the pupils.

This is pupillary reflex in other words.

If both eyes show equal dilatation then this is a physiological response.

This is not suggestive of seizures unless you are also having visual symptoms.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
