A 31-year-old male presented with complaints of blurring of vision with strain during reading in the right eye for the past 2 months. On examination, the visual acuity was OD 6/6 N6 (blur and stress) and OS 6/6 N6. Subjective refraction (fogging) was OD + 1.50 D 6/6, N6, and OS + 0.50/−0.50 at 10° 6/6, N6. Anterior- and posterior-segment examination was within normal limits with a single finding of mid-dilated pupil in the right eye which was sluggish in reaction; intraocular pressure and color vision of both eyes were also within normal limits. The patient had no history of any systemic, ocular disease, trauma, and allergy. Slit-lamp photograph of OD pupil postpilocarpine [Figure 1] and [Figure 2].
