    Unhappy Unequal Pupils

    I've had slightly unequal pupils for several months now and it is really worrying me. There is only a tiny difference but it is noticeable. I went to see an optician about it when I first noticed it and she said she could see it as well. But when she measured my pupils she said there were both basically the same, with perhaps only a mm of difference between them. At that time I was also experiencing frequent headaches, so the optician recommended that I went to see my doctor about it anyway. But rather stupidly, I never got round to making an appointment, and since the headaches stopped, I have not been to see the doctor. I have sort of forget about it for the past several months, with no other neurological symptoms bothering me particularly, but now I have noticed it and started worrying about it again. I just wanted to get some other people's opinions to see if you think it is worth going to see the doctor about. Thanks for reading and please reply if you can.

    Update: For the past 5 days I've had a chronic headache so I really think this could be a tumour. I'm going to try and get a doctor's appointment as soon as I can.

    Re: Unequal Pupils

    Just found your post. I'm wondering what happened? I am not from the UK but have lived there and I know you often have to be on a waiting list to be treated. Were you able to have the pressure in your eyes checked? Did they do a CT Scan? Hope everything worked out well. Cheers! Sophie

    Hi, everything's turned out ok now. I never went to the doctor about it but the headaches have stopped and not returned for about a month and a half, so I haven't been worrying about it. Thanks for replying though!
