Intraoperative miosis is a constricted il induced by the surgeon. This is common in cataract surgery after the intraocular lens is inserted in the posterior chamber of the eye (which is behind the il) to keep the lens in place so to speak.
This miosis (making il smaller) is accomplished by an cholinergic medication drop.
Hope this helps. Be well. Pup
