Pupil big: When the pupil is large for a short period of time, this may be due to episodic mydriasis, a benign condition-- it may also be due to other eye disorders, such as adie's pupil or horner's syndrome. Call your local eye doctor to discuss this condition.

Good idea: A doctor visit is a must, if your pupil has returned to normal since this happened it was probably some chemical that caused this. If not back to normal it is extremely important to see a doctor.
