Anisocoria, literally Greek for unequal pupils, describes a condition where the pupils of each eye are different in sizes. Approximately 25% of the population may have a noticeable degree of pupil inequality known as physiologic anisocoria. This pupil-size disparity may fluctuate in degree, be found to alternate between sides, and may disappear at times.
In rare cases, a disparity in pupils may be an indication of neurological disease.
