Eriksgirls picture of me showing Anisocoria

It is not a tumor! 😉

Eriksgirl has uses my eyes as her personal gauge to see if I am near a seizure. Maybe that happened for her after my last seizure where my pupils were very different sizes, like someone with a concussion and this was before I hit the floor.  I told her they were not off by much when she showed me the picture.  She exclaimed they should be equal. 🙂

What I do know is that the Anisocoria (different pupil sizes) is relatively new for me, and not something I have had my whole life. This would make the Anisocoria most likely caused by Lyme, or MS. I think for either of these it would point to optic neuritis but my eyes are checked regularly (not to say that optic neuritis could not be missed). Other than that I have no great ideas other than a tumor, which I am pretty sure it is not that (recent MRI :-). (or I keep getting concussions, might explain my repeating myself so often to the kids)

I guess it will be something to discuss at my next neuro exam. I cannot remember the last time he examined my eyes. Fortunately, my optometrist has a really nice computer/camera that takes a picture of the back of my eye to look for problems. He is not a doctor, but he regularly checks the optic nerve.

  1. Shortly after posting I asked Eriksgirl to check and see if my pupils are equal. She said yes, but the right eye was struggling to adjust to the flashlight (it did though with some “weird” fluttering). She stands by it is a good sign for an impending seizure in me.
