Question about dilated pupils
    #2674473 - 05/13/04 05:59 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am wondering why things aren't super bright or out of focus when one takes a drug like cannabis or mushrooms, which greatly dilate the pupils. Does the brain somehow compensate? And couldn't the amount of light entering pupils that are twice their normal size for the given light cause damage to the eyes? I don't understand how things can appear at about the right brightness and in focus when the pupils are that dilated.

If there are any papers on this, I would appreciate the info.

Thanks.

I don't know about you, but things always seem super bright and out of focus to me when I'm tripping.

Got a question about a substance?  Erowid might already have your answer! Have questions about the  mushroom experience? The  Tripper's FAQ may have your answer or someone else might have had your question before.

I like tripping on full moons, I usually end up seeing better than during the day
