In brief: Yes.

This can be either due to the drops that the doctor uses in each eye or due to a difference in each iris of the person who is being dilated.
The doctor may use a stronger combination of drops in one eye resulting in uneven pupil dilation. The iris of one eye may have an anatomical difference in its make-up that is either congenital or acquired (trauma) that could lead to uneven pupil dilation.
