The pupil of the right eye of my girlfriend (18, contact lenses)is bigger than her left one. Can pupil sizes be different normally or is it a pathology?
Yes, & maybe: Some people are born with different sized pupils & it doesn't mean anything. If she's only recently developed them, it could be a sign of neurological problems, though. I recommend looking at old pictures- if they were different when she was little, like they are now, there's nothing to worry about. ...Read more
Pupils different sizes, noticed last yr. PCP noticed at physical. Since then notice it varies between equal and unequal sizes. Why? Ask eye doctor???
Likely normal: About 20% of people have anisocoria, or unequal pupils. It is not indicative of any disease, and does not threaten vision. You have probably had it your whole life and never noticed. As long as you don't have any visual or other symptoms, there is probably nothing to do. Hope this helps! ...Read more
I'm 19. Told eye pressures were in 30s and cups different sizes. Grandpa had glaucoma in 70s. Eyes see fine. Have high bp but is controlled. Scared! ?
I went to the eye doctor for the first time - the optic nerve size is slightly different between my eyes. Why would this happen/should I be concerned?
No: Your ophthalmologist would have told you otherwise if there is a need to do something different, I believe he meant the optic disc rather, not the optic nerve. Just follow up routinely, with the ophthalmologist for fundus (back of the eyes) exam, and ocular pressure measurements, best wishes ...Read more

Can I choose how high a crease to get with Asian eyelid surgery? I've read about different crease heights with Asian eyelid surgery. Is this something I can choose, or does the surgeon choose depending on my eye/eyelid size? .
This will be a decision you will make with your plastic surgeon. Some of this will depend on your own anatomy of your eyelid and brow position.
You need to consult with a plastic surgeon in your area.
Best of luck to you.

6 month old son's left pupil is sometimes a bit larger. Other times eyes appear same size. When irises contract or release, the difference persists.
Ophtho visit: I would suggest seeing an Ophthalmologist (Eye doctor) asap. This can be something benign but also can be something more serious that needs to be looked at. The term is anisocoria. It can be just monitored or your son might need an MRI of the brain/orbits/neck to be sure nothing else in the brain is causing his pupils to look that way. ...Read more
My 5 month old has small pupils. They are totally equal in size, respond to light and definitely get bigger, but they just never get really big. Dr checked her eyes and said it's fine, it's just her and she has very light eyes. Ok?

Can ear infection/disorder/disease or vestibular issues cause unequal pupil size? Opthamalogist says eyes fine and he doesn't suspect neurological.
Vestibular lesion would not alter your pupil size. If an ophthalmologist examined you and determined it to be not a cause for concern, please let it be.

Light reflex: When your eye is exposed to light, the dilated pupils receive a signal from the retina, through your brain which tells them to close down to limit the light entry and protect the eye. The pupils (iris) is a muscular structure in a radial pattern which responds to light signals this way. ;pretty cool! ...Read more
Natural variation: Assuming that there is nothing wrong with the eye (vision ok, no trauma, no redness, no pain) then what you are probably seeing is the natural variation of the iris color which can be patterned, variegated or as in your case sort of an outer ring of a different color than the inner ring. Enjoy the beauty of this as it is not harmful and will not affect eye health. ...Read more
Sisters pupil reacts to light but instantly returns to original (large) size even while light remains on eye? Is this normal?
Swinging flashlight: Testing for an afferent pupillary defect, a so-called marcus-gunn pupil, is performed with the swinging flashlight test. The comparison made is between the direct and consensual responses. When the consensual response exceeds the direct response, an optic nerve or retinal problem may be inferred. Your description may be of hippus, a benign tonal oscillation of the iris musculature. See an eye md. ...Read more
Dear sir I have a eye pupil big in size then another. How can I resize this pupil? It was due to an accident by a cricket ball.
Contact lenses: Pupils react to light and can contract and expand to let light in. Since your cricket ball injury I assume that something is damaged in one eye. I doubt any type of "resizing" will help. The "resized" side will still be different to the normal reactive side. How long ago was the injury? Maybe the injury is still healing, and will improve with time. ...Read more

I had my pupils dilated yesterday at 11am (3 different drops) and my right eye is still dilated and my left eye isn't. it's been about 23 hours. Why?
Uncommon result of the drug (s) used to keep the pupils dilated enough for a complete retinal examination! The dose can vary (the amount that actually reaches the eye differs from side to side. The 23 hours is a bit longer than usual and if there is not SIGNIFICANT return to normal tomorrow the eye professional who did your exam should be contacted!! Hope this helps

How long will it take my pupil to go back to normal size after vitrectomy w/gas bubble insertion? My eye still looks dilated one week post op.
Depends on meds: Your surgeon likely used a postoperative mydriatic/cycloplegic agent that keeps your pupil dilated & you ciliary muscle relaxed, both to ease postoperative pain. Occasionally, if laser endophotocoagulation is used during the vitrectomy, there is an infrequent occurence of residual mydriasis (iridoplegia) from laser damage of the short ciliary nerves. Most cases: dilation may last few weeks. ...Read more

Could my ambiopia be caused by me having 2 differenct color eyes? Lt is brown, rt is blue on top brown on bottom. Rt one is my problem eye.
Not related: Amblyopia, usually defined as poor vision in one eye without anatomical abnormality, would not likely be related to differences in eye color. The changes you describe could be from an iris nevus (like a "birthmark") or some other uncommon eye problems. Have a thorough eye examination by an ophthalmologist to sort it out. ...Read more
