Eye Problems: Changes in Your Pupils - Topic Overview
With an injury to the
eye, the muscles that control the pupil size and shape can be damaged. These muscles control the ability of the pupil to change in size and keep its round shape.
An injury that punctures the eyeball may tear the colored part (iris) of the
eye, causing it to lose its round shape.
