The fluctuations of the human pupil in presence of light stimulation have been long investigated in several clinical applications, both in natural and artificial conditions. The pupil dynamics offer useful information in order to make non-invasive diagnoses of neurological diseases. Typically the pupil is shot by a CCD camera, which is the core of the measurement apparatus, called pupillometer, and the resulting image is analysed. In this paper we present the application of a multiscale approach to edge detection to identify the morphological parameters of the pupil edge. First, we determine the degradation parameters of the measured image, which is assumed to be blurred by a Gaussian kernel and corrupted by an additive white noise; then we apply the edge detection procedure and the optimal fitting, showing the main results; a first dynamical analysis is also presented.
