1. While assessing the pupillary reflexes, the consensual light reflex is really difficult to see in

1. While assessing the pupillary reflexes, the consensual light reflex is really difficult to see in the other eye. Are there any tips for that? 2. Is it clinically significant to examine the consensual light reflex? If there is a lesion of the IIIrd cranial nerve of the unilluminated eye to impair the consensual response, this will be clear by the other symptoms and signs of the IIIrd cranial nerve palsy on that eye. If there is a lesion of the optic nerve of the unilluminated eye, the patient will not have a direct light reflex of that eye when examining its own direct reflex. I am not sure how the IIIrd cranial nerve can lose only its parasympathetic fibres. It is difficult to see the unilluminated pupil when light is not directly shining on it.
