Creating the Illusion of a Dilating Pupil
Journal of Ophthalmic Prosthetics
One of the more challenging aspects of creating a realistic ocular prosthesis is a need for a pupil that appears to respond to changes in available light sources. Although there have been attempts to provide changes in pupil size by chemical, mechanical, and electronic means, in general these attempts have proved to be unsuccessful. I have developed a technique to give the illusion of pupil differentiation and thereby create a more natural looking prosthesis.
