Techniques for pupil reconstruction are largely focused on making an enlarged pupillary aperture smaller, however an overly small or misshapen pupil can also debilitate vision. Enlarging and shaping abnormal pupils is very effective in improving vision and cosmesis in these vulnerable eyes. Subtractive iris shaping is accomplished utilizing cautery, intraocular scissors, and/or a small gauge vitrector.
