The Prostitutes pupil
We all know pupil is examined in neurological as well as in ophthalmology. A pupil is involved in two main reflexes, first is the Accommodation reflex where pupil reduces in size on perceiving near object, and the other one is the light reflex where pupil constricts when exposed to any form of light. The pupil simulates a shutter of the camera. The Prostitutes pupil is a condition where the Accommodation reflex is present but light reflex is absent. This condition got this vulgar name because olden days commercial sex workers who get infected with syphilis had this pupil, it can be also seen in diabetic neuropathy. Argyll Robertson is the Ophthalmologist who first described this condition.
So many medical diseases can be diagnosed by just examining a person’s eye. In poetries, they say “Eye speaks” “Eyes never lie”. That’s why even word of God says in Mat 6:23 “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness–how deep is that darkness!” Such is the power of the eye. Are our eyes seeing the right things? Are our eyes seeing just the imperfections in others? Are our eyes running to find fault in others by Byron n blind to our own fault? Many of us owe eyes that are spiritually blind and corrupt.
Beautiful eyes created by God is being used to watch pornography which is clearly a sin. Are our eyes set on Good things or evil things? Many times we get corrupted with the wrong stare on others. It’s human nature to turn and look which we cannot be resisting but persistently looking at things or a person with a bad motive is wrong. Are we casting evil eyes? Are our eyes spiritually blind? By keeping our eyes clean and we can keep the whole body, our life, our relationship with God and others clean too. May God bless you.
Matthew 6:22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light”
