The frequent involvement of the autonomic nervous system in the peripheral neuropathy of diabetes mellitus can give rise to a variety of syndromes (1). Patients may manifest such diverse problems as orthostatic hypotension, impotence, neurogenic bladder, and nocturnal diarrhea (1, 2). Also attributed to autonomic neuropathy are the frequently reported abnormalities of the pupil (2).

In order to study the movements of the diabetic pupil in detail
