Dilated Pupils

There have been some patients recently coming into the office with large pupils. These patients have often been young patients who are teenagers. The pupils are larger than normal and don’t react to light very much (normally the pupils should react to light by shrinking). It seems that these patients have large pupils due to the use of medicated wipes for excessive sweating. These wipes are sometimes recommended by dermatologists. So, if you have large pupils and don’t know why, ask yourself if you use any medications that could cause it. Maybe the medication that is causing it is a wipe used to decrease sweating!
