Anisocoria: is a condition of unequal pupil sizes. Affecting 20% of the population, it can be an entirely harmless condition or a symptom of more serious medical problems. Have it checked out. If it is harmless, just ignore it. If there is an underlying medical problem, then that is what needs to be treated. There are medicines to make a pupil larger or smaller, and the strength can be adjusted. Don't do that
