Possibly just presbyopia. Anisocoria refers to having pupils of different sizes, which can be a variant of normal, or can indicate serious disease, such as Horner's syndrome. Most mild ocular discomfort is related to dryness, but if you need a new prescription anyway, make an appointment with an optometrist or ophthalmologist who can sort out your symptoms by examining your eyes.

I don't think so. If you are having persistent light sensitivity you really need a comprehensive dilated eye exam to determine the cause.

Incorrect prescription glasses can use headache, but should not cause light sensitivity. I would be concerned about dryness of the eye or any form of inflammation. Please try warm compress and tear drops to see if it will help. If not please see an eye care provider
