Eye dilation
    #1164616 - 12/23/02 10:30 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Anyone know why the eyes dilate on psychedelics as opposed to constricting on opiates?

Psychedelics make you see more.

Opiates make you see less.

Larger pupils=more visuals  :grin:

despite the fact that those two answers are completely wrong, i do have an interesting theory kind of relating to that...i thought it up on shrooms (where else?)
I think that the reason that time slows down on shrooms is because you are not restrained by time anymore, and you can cram a lot more information into the time frame that you are forced to live in. In other words, time makes itself longer for you so you can get more information...not time itself but time in your brain. I just remembered this when he said big pupils mean you see more . Im sure thats why everything is so fucking BRIGHT but not why u see visuals, im not sure why it happens.

Mushrooms, LSD, and other seratonin antagonistic hallucinogens, cause sensory overload (wider pupils do allow in more light), hence the hallucinations. I'm sure there's a more scientific, physiological explanation for pupil dilation somewhere on the net.

Opiates are depressant narcotics. I think they cause sensory deprivation to some extent.

Your pupils are dilated even when you close your eyes...

But I agree. I don't see visuals and pupil size being linked together. Eye doctors (don't know the name in English) sometimes put drops in your eyes to look at your retina. What those drops do is that they dilate your pupils. No visuals whatsoever!

"visuals have nothing to do with dialation"

Some of the visuals I've gotten were caused by dialation, because the colors of the real world were extremely more vivid. But I'd have to agree, other then vivid colors I don't think dialation causes visuals. I've noticed though, if you look at someones eyes who are shrooming, they're zipping all over the place. That's probably what causes people to look like things are morphing and running around. Most visuals I'd have to say are in the mind though.

Uh, pupil dilation causes more light to be let in to your eye..
how would that cause visuals?
that's all it does, is cause light to be more bright.

Thought it would be better to bump this than to make a new post. 

Would using opiates and lsd together (or any pupil dilation / constriction drugs together) cause a pupil to be normal sized?  (If dosage was concurrent).  Or would it cause your pupils to fluctuate large and small? 

From pure conjecture, constriction seems more prevalent since optometrists can dilate your pupils and then supposedly constrict them afterwards if they choose.

Haha that doesn't help too much.  My question was which would take a dominant effect, if any.

No.  You should have made a new thread.  This is SIX YEARS OLD.  Possibly the oldest thread I've ever seen resurrected.

Many hallucinogens induce mydriasis. The psychedelics, including LSD, magic mushrooms, mescaline, 2C-B, and DMT, to name a few, all do so by agonizing the serotonergic 5-HT2A receptors in the brain. The dissociatives such as ketamine, DXM, and PCP do so as well via antagonism of the NMDA glutamate receptors. There have also been reports that the atypical psychedelic herb salvia divinorum causes mydriasis. It works via agonism of the κ-Opioid receptors in the brain. How the neurological changes induced by these drugs ultimately causes pupil dilation is unknown however.

And if you took a bunch of those drops you'd be delirious, hallucinating.




The explanation given previously is correct, essentially.  Serotonin hallucinogens are stimulatory and your eyes open to allow in more light, your blood pressure goes up, your heart beats faster, et cet.


Opioids are depressant and cause your cornea to contract, your heart and breathing to decrease in frequency, and your gut to slow down to increase digestion.
