In brief: Unequal pupils = ER

If someone has asymmetrical eye dilation and dizzy spells they should have someone drive them to the ER immediately.
They may have a bleed on the brain or a brain tumor. They should NOT wait for a visit with their pcp or go to urgent care. There are some people who have asymmetrical pupils normally - but this is very uncommon.
