What causes Anisocoria?
Just so, is Anisocoria serious?
Anisocoria. Anisocoria is a condition characterized by an unequal size of the eyes' pupils. Affecting 20% of the population, it can be an entirely harmless condition or a symptom of more serious medical problems.
Beside above, what drugs can cause Anisocoria? Some Common Causes of Anisocoria
|Drugs (eg, scopolamine patch; cocaine, pilocarpine, animal flea collars or sprays, organophosphates, or aerosolized ipratropium if they contact the eye; cycloplegic, mydriatic, clonidine, or apraclonidine eye drops)||History of use or exposure|
In respect to this, can Anisocoria go away?
Physiological anisocoria may be temporary or permanent, depending on individual cases. About 15–30% of the population experiences physiological anisocoria. The difference between the pupil sizes is more or less constant, even when the light changes, and is not usually of concern.
What does it mean if your pupils are two different sizes?
Normally the size of the pupil is the same in each eye, with both eyes dilating or constricting together. The term anisocoria refers to pupils that are different sizes at the same time. The presence of anisocoria can be normal (physiologic), or it can be a sign of an underlying medical condition.
