Anyone have a baby with unequal pupil size!!

My g'daughter just turned 8 months yesterday....she has this since she was born....I've told the pediatrican (sp) she didn't seem concerned. But, when I took her to be seen about a cold, I insisted that she refer her to an eye doctor. So...hopefully I will find out something...Does anyone else know anything about this?

  • My Children dont have it but I do. As far back as I can remember I have had very unequal pupils, most of the time people dont notice but when they do EVERYONE freaks out. I cannot tell you how many times people want to take me to the emergency room because of brain damage or something. Its rather annoying and its perfectly normal for me. Im not saying that could be your issue but its not always a sign of something wrong especially if she was born with it. Its usually a problem when it suddenly becomes unequal. Nothing wrong with getting it check out but just wanted to say it is sometimes a normal thing.

  • No, I haven't heard of being born with something like this. Good luck!

  • pupil or iris? It's hard to tell at this age becaus their eyes are still growing & adjusting.

  • Google PEARL pupils
    You needed a specialist referral awhile ago. Please let me know the outcome.
