Eyeball special effect
October 21, 2007 1:23 AM Subscribe
In medical shows like House or E.R., the doctor will often shine a flashlight in to the eye of a comatose patient, but the pupil doesn't constrict. How do they do this special effect?

It usually looks very realistic, so I'm assuming it's not CG or a fake face. Can you just give drugs to the actor to prevent the pupillary reflex? Have a blind guy stand in for the eye in question?
