is anisometropia treated?

Yes: Actually any contact lens is good for anisometropia. This term means that there is a significant difference in the prescription of the eyes which can make it difficult for the brain to fuse the images from the two eyes into one. The contact lenses allow the eyes to see images which are more alike in size which makes it easier to fuse the images.
