The case was diagnosed with bilateral tonic pupil following neurological, radiological and laboratory evaluations. Tonic pupil should be kept in mind in eyes with light-near dissociation. In this case report, bilateral tonic pupils and the possible mechanism which may cause this disorder were discussed.
