Step 7: Dark Room Examinations

to estimate the pupil size in room light and do the following:
The reason it's important for a DRE to check pupil size and pupil reaction
to the light is because the eyes react differently to the different drug
categories. For example, narcotic analgesics will cause the pupils to
become very constricted whereas hallucinogens typically cause the pupils
to dilate. Also checked will be the subject's nasal area and mouth
to check for any signs of ingestion in the oral and nasal area.
