Default Right eye dilation and contraction

Hi,

I noticed for the first time a few weeks ago while shaving my right eye dialates and contracts like trying to focus repeatedly. My left eye seems to behave normally.

I have vision issues and getting therapy for my sight, anyone notice something similar?

Hey,

I've also noticed that my left pupil never constricts to the same size that my right eye does.

The medication that I take also seems dilate my pupils more in general.

Unfortunately this only seems to aggravate the light sensitivity issue.

Sometimes they do mention that unequal pupil size is a sign of a brain injury...

You guys are obsessing on things you should ignore.

I guess we're all entitled to our own opinions...
