  • It is perforated in the middle by an aperture pupil. Iris is highly muscular
  • Circular and radial muscles are present. Circular muscles are sphincter type. Radial muscles are dilator type.
  • On contraction of circular muscles diameter of pupil is reduced it is myosis, it takes place in sharp light.
  • On contraction of radial muscles diameter of pupil is increased, it is mydriosis, it occurs in dimlight.
  • Atropine is used to dialate pupil.
