Examples of Abnormal Eye Reflections

Note: The left eye obviously is turned in towards the nose.  Note the corneal light reflection in the left eye.  The reflection is actually on the iris.  In the right eye the reflection is on the pupil.  Both reflections are not symmetrical.

Note how the reflection is higher in the pupil.  The person who is holding the light is shining it higher in the eye.  That is fine.  The important thing to notice is how the eyes compare to each other.  The right eye reflection is centered and the left eye reflection is in the outer aspect of the pupil.
