Anisocoria Diagnosis and Treatment
To diagnose anisocoria, your ophthalmologist will examine your pupils in both a lighted room and a dark room. This allows them to see how your pupils respond to light. This can help them figure out which pupil is abnormal.
Your ophthalmologist will also check your eyes with a slit-lamp microscope. This instrument lets your eye doctor look at your eye in small, detailed sections. That makes it easier to spot problems.
If you have other symptoms along with different pupil size, your ophthalmologist will do other tests to learn more about your condition.
Usually anisocoria does not need to be treated since it does not affect eyesight or eye health.
If anisocoria is related to an eye health problem, that problem will need to be treated.
If you have questions about anisocoria, be sure to ask your eye doctor. Your ophthalmologist is committed to protecting your sight.
