Ophthalmological pharmacology is a rapidly expanding field aimed at achieving the safest and most effective treatment results. Physicians must be aware of the side-effect profiles, both beneficial and harmful, of medications currently used. This review highlights the available data on the effect of some ophthalmic medications on pupil size; it was limited to all reports or studies describing topical ophthalmic agents not originally designed or indicated to alter pupil diameter. This awareness will protect patients from unwanted drug-induced side effects and will improve clinical management and patient care.
