Different size pupils?
« on: May 09, 2014, 08:52:48 PM »
My left pupil is noticeably larger than my right. I have frequent headaches (so does my mother, they're probably anxiety related) and a severe phobia of aneurysms. This pupil has been larger since I was a kid (says my mother), and I've seen an eye doctor since the first time I noticed it (about 2 years ago, I think), but forgot to mention it. I can't stop obsessing over it. Anyone else?

I have unequal pupils a lot. They can be related to the headaches you're getting, as they're sometimes a symptom of migraines. If you've had them since you were little it's definitely nothing to worry about. As many as 1 in 5 people have differing sizes in pupils from birth. I've also heard that they're more common with blue eyes for some reason. After I noticed it in myself a couple months ago, I started to notice that tons of people have at least a slight size difference too.

If it's BEEN like that then that is just normal for you.  It's not like it just got like that in the past month or so!  No worries - AND you went to the eye doctor!  You're fine  :yes:
