Both iridoplegia and cycloplegia can result from injury to the eye, inflammation of parts of the eye, or in some cases the use of pupil-dilating drops.
In the case of iridoplegia due to injury, the pupil of the affected eye is generally larger than usual and changes very little - if at all - in response to stimuli such as light and drugs that would normally result in changes to the size of the pupil.
