    nope, nothing that can be done safely. Using eye-drops to alter pupil dilation is not going to be good in the long term.

    Why is this even a concern?

    They use eye drops with homatropine in them to dilate pupils for eye procedures. They aren't available outside of a doctors office though, as far as I know.

    Bright light will make your pupils constrict and darkness will make them dilate.

    One could attempt to make eye drops. Sterility is important here. Atropine can be obtained from some nightshades, that will dilate the pupils. B2 may constrict pupils. Chronically doing either of these is likely very bad for eyesight.

    Why would one want to do this?

    If one does make home made eye drops keeping the solutions sterile is very important. Eye infections can be nasty and if severe enough can lead to blindness.

    I assume you're worried about people noticing the dilation/contraction, right? Cause otherwise, who cares?

    The classic remedy is sunglasses but at night they just make you even more conspicuous.

    I know you could fix this problem with custom contact lenses but $$$$$! It won't be cheap and they may just draw more attention to you also.

    And don't worry about those awkward late-night purchases from gas stations and stuff - those clerks couldn't care less. They deal with so many drunk and drugged up people that as long as you don't rob them, cause a scene or expel any bodily fluid that they'll have to clean up, you probably qualify as a Good Customer.

    As for cops and your parents - well, just do your best to avoid them.

    Maybe the use of opiates but that could be dangerous mixing so try them first on thier own.

    Well since you're open to medications...

    Any cholinergic - choline for example (a common dietary supplement) can produce pupil constriction (miosis). Conversely any anti-cholinergic will do the opposite and produce mydriasis (dilation), Atropine for example as SWIJasim mentioned. Opioids also all produce miosis.

    In terms of other prescription medications, mirtazapine and trazodone both produce a degree of miosis. I have personally experienced this on Mirtazapine, it makes his eyes quite beady and evil looking the pupils get so small sometimes.

    Anti-psychotics like olanzapine, haloperidol and quetiapine all produce mioses as well.

    As for pupil dilation, anti-cholinergics, serotonergics (SSRIs, SNRIs, 5-HTP, Tryptophan included), and stimulants will all produce that.

    Now just because SWIM listed all those things doesn't mean they should be tried, as producing an exact pupiliary diameter on a regular basis through means of medication and supplementation in order to hide ongoing drug abuse really is rather impossible and a somewhat silly waste of effort!
