Cayenne pepper (CP) is an extremly strong eye irritant (like tear gas) and the pupil will usually be dilated not from the pepper but from the pain and excitement of gettin it in the eye. CP sprays are used for self protection from human criminals and animals like bears. In spite of its dramatic effect on the eye it is unusual for it to cause permanent damage.
