We use this type of penlight where I work. It has the diameters right on there. I don't think 1 mm are on ours either, although you'll very rarely see a 1 mm pupil, but it's half the diameter of 2 mm so not too hard to figure out 🙂

Oh, where to buy them... You could check your local uniform shop. Otherwise they do sell them on Amazon--I just found a bunch typing "pen light with pupil gauge" in the search box. They've got cool colors even! :laugh:
