Title Why Are There No RAPD in Unilateral Cataracts?
Creator Alfredo A. Sadun, MD, PhD, Flora L. Thornton Chair, Professor of Ophthalmology and Neurological Surgery, Keck School of Medicine at USC
Subject Unilateral Cataract; Relative Afferent Pupillary Defect; Brightness Compensation; Cyroextraction
Description Galen of Pergamon suggested that a patient with cataracts should have his pupil sizes evaluated in bright sunlight. He described how alternate ocular occlusion could be used to prognosticate cataract surgery (couching). In the next 1,500 years many other physicians noted that moderate opacities of the cornea or lens could have a profound effect on visual acuity but would not produce a relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD).
