Can be repaired: Only you can determine if you look "weird" with misaligned eyes, also called strabismus. First step is an eye exam to determine the cause and duration of the problem.

I have unequal refractive power in both eyes and I get persisting eye strain. Is there a solution?
Adjust power: Once the eyes are unequal over 2 or 3 diopters (anisometropia), some people may experience eye strain. Also large differences can cause image size disparity (aniseikonia). Either adjust the refractive power by undercorrecting to match, by using contact lens, by doing some sort of refractive procedure, i.e. Lasik, lens removal, exchange or placement, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have unequal refractive power in both eyes and i get non-stop persisting eye strain. What should I do?

Can ear infection/disorder/disease or vestibular issues cause unequal pupil size? Opthamalogist says eyes fine and he doesn't suspect neurological.
How unequal: 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. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Are you supposed to have a small pupil (unequal to the unaffected eye) after iridotomy and, if so, for how long?
Frequently: Iridotomy is done to protect your eye from an acute attack of glaucoma due to narrow angles (the space between the edge of the iris and the cornea). Usually a laser is applied to the iris to create a hole which by passes the normal fluid pathway preventing the problem. Your surgeon might have put into your eye a pupillary constrictor to aid in this and this makes the pupil smaller on that side. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unequal pupils r>l, both reactive, intermittent r eye pain and r sided headaches up to 3months. Noncontrast CT normal. Dizziness past few days. Tumor?
Neurologist, MRI: First, don't panic. Uneven pupils, aka anisocoria, are often due to a benign condition like migraines which would also explain the eye pain and headaches. However, more serious causes like multiple sclerosis and brain tumors are possible. You should see a neurologist who will likely order an MRI of the brain as part of a complete evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
