Kinda, my eyes started to strain and then they relaxed when I looked into the dark
2. Do you have any control over your pupils when they dilate?
No because, if we did we probably would forget and burn out our rods and cones.
3. What do we call this when a reflex happens without our control?
Automatic reflexes? I don't know major brain fart right now.
4. Why do our pupils get bigger in the dark and smaller in the light?
In the dark so we can collect more light, and in the light so we don't burn our rods and cones.
5. How does this reflex protect our eyes?
Again so we won't burn our rods and cones. So we don't go blind.
