What does it mean if one of your pupils is bigger than the other???
what does it mean if one of your pupils is bigger than the other???

It's called a concusion.

was one in harsher light than the other?

It could mean you have a head injury. Have you recently hit your head?

It's called anisocoria, and can be caused by any number of things.

Horner's Syndrome - caused by stroke, cervical disc disease, lung tumor, carotid artery dissection, brain tumor

Oculomotor nerve palsy

Pharmacologic - many drugs can cause enlarged pupils

Mechanical - damage to the iris, for example, after cataract surgery

Tonic pupil (Adie pupil)

Transient anisocoria - may be associated with migraine headaches

If you are concerned, see an ophthalmologist. If you have had recent head trauma, go to an ER.

See an optometrist but I would guess one is far sighted or near sighted and the other is not.

You want to get that checked. Sooner, rather than later.

"If only one pupil is dilated, however, you may have Adie's syndrome, a condition in which one pupil contracts more slowly than the other in response to light. It's usually caused either by a malfunction in the mechanism that controls the dilation reflex or from a harmless inflammation of the eye nerves.

More seriously, a single dilated pupil could indicate a brain injury, stroke or tumor.

If just one pupil is larger than the other, see the doctor immediately, says Dr. Slakter. "This is a case where a matter of an hour or two could save your life," he says."

If you have had a recent head injury, it means there is something very wrong. Get to the hospital. At the least, you have a concussion, at worst, you may have bleeding in your brain.

If you don't have significant medical history it can be caused by certain eye-drops given by Rx. If this isn't it ck with your doctor, its too much to tell without your medical history. You are fine.
