Afferent Pupillary Defects

Afferent pupillary defects (APD) refers to an abnormality in the pupillary response to light, indicating dysfunction of the optic nerve or retina. It is a specialized skill utilized in neurological examinations to diagnose various conditions such as optic neuritis, optic nerve compression, and retinal detachment. The test involves shining a light into each eye and measuring the degree of constriction in response to the light. If one eye has a weaker response, it indicates an APD and further diagnostic testing may be necessary.
