why do doctors shine their flash light in peoples eyes.?
for example, when someone goes to the doctor, the doctor shines their flash light in your eyes. what do they see?
                      









pulse.
your cornea and pupils.
If it's swollen, small, grayish in color, exposed to lighting.


carlet
pupils, yes, but maybe to test the reaction to the light, cos it's so quick

They check your corneas and your eye pupils to see if they are healthy.

How your pupils react to the light and the retinas on the back of your eyes, and the cornea to see if you have cataracts.

To look at your cornea and see if your pupils dilate.

its so they can dilate your pupil too see inside of your retina, so they can see if there is a problem.

Lots of things they are making sure your pupils are equal and reactive and they are also looking in the back of your eyes where the veins are they can tell if you have all kinds of diseases by checking that area.

Just a light is checking cornea and dilation.

Drops in your eyes and a very bright light over every millimeter is a retinal examination. Usually done only by an ophthalmologist.

to check how your pupils dilate to make sure your not loopy, I DONT KNOW AM NOT A DOCTOR!! LOL the dilate part is true though

1. To check your pupils reactions
2. And to check your retina (the back of your eye)
3. To check your lens

Doctors can see a lot by looking in your eyes, the color, blood vessels and clarity of the eye can tell them a lot.


randall flagg
They are checking for something wrong, can be pupil dilation ( although that's for unconscious people mostly) or cornea.

They are looking to see if the pupil is constricting as it should.

To see if your pupils dilate. If they do not then that is a sign of the brain stem being damaged.

So they could check your eye if anything is wrong with your eyes.


Core
They're looking for the speed of dilation and any shaking movement that shouldn't be there. It's basically just checking that everything's okay since the eyes can be used to indicate certain conditions.


Da Parsnips
to see the pupils size to see if you are well or not...the pupil will get smaller if light is shined into it and bigger when light isn't shinned into it. try it

They're seeing if your pupils are dilating when exposed to light. If your pupils don't, there is a problem that must be resolved.

Doctors are checking to see how your pupils react to light.

I work as a paramedic, and we do the same thing to help assess patient status.

A normal person would be PERRL = Pupils are equal, round, and reactive to light.


Most people's pupils will dialate and constrict equally, even though the light source is only shone in one eye at a time. However, some people pupils will act independently.

If a person has a brain or nerve injury, a common sign is that their pupils will not react to change in light. If a person does not have a pulse, and CPR is performed, doctors and medical care personnel will check pupil response to see if they have suffered brain damage to assess whether or not to continue the resuscitation efforts. Also, drug users on opiates will have tiny pin-point pupils, and barely reactive to light.
