TRUTH !!
In experiments conducted at the University of Southampton in England and in Germany confirmed that even mild and incidental noises cause the pupils to dilate. It is believed that this is why silence is so important to surgeons, watchmakers, and others who perform delicate manual operations; the sounds cause their pupils to change focus and blur their vision.
