what is anisocoria vs anisometropia problem?

Pupil vs focus: Anisocoria is a difference in pupil size and anisometropia is a difference in the focusing power of the two eyes. Anisocoria can sometimes lead to anisometropia if the pupil size makes it difficult to focus, but it does not work the other way around.
