Possibly normal : I suggest you look at recent pictures to try to gauge pupil size as compared to present. Do family members have large pupils? Any family members see pupil change? Do the pupils react to light? If so, this is a good sign. If not make appt with pcp . Did polisporin usage predate or post date "knockout"?

May be normal: Pupil size depends on ambient light so in themselves vary. Asymmetry is more important. I get you have no problem.

Sort of: Dilated pupils are larger than normal and don't react to light as much as normal.See your personal provider to further evaluate the cause.
