Can stress worsen Adie's pupil? Are yoga and massage therapy recommended treatments?
I am not aware of the effects of stress, yoga, or massage on Adie's pupil. This is generally a benign condition and asymptomatic, and nothing usually needs to be done to differentiate it from other pupillary problems. If the reading vision is blurred, sometimes a weak-strength pilocarpine eyedrop is helpful. Your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) could suggest a consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist to confirm the diagnosis.
