pupil dialation
Apr 16, 2006

My pupils do not always dialate evenly. At times they are even other times one is small the other is large I am not on any medication and this has been going on for a few years. Should I be worried?

Response from Dr. Henry

Generally that would not mean anything serious but a standard good eye examination by an ophthalmologist as well as pointing out that finding to your HIV specialist is suggested. Sometimes conditions like syphilis or asymmetric nerve problems could cause the asymmetry you describe so pre-cautionary evaluation is worthwhile. KH
