Baby has one large pupil and one small...

I am just wondering if anyone elses children have this condition.. my adopted son, Parker.. he's just turned 2.. has one large pupil and one smaller one. His eyes have been like that ever since we got him, so pretty much since he was born. His doctor tells me it's nothing and not to worry, but I still wonder sometimes.. what exactly causes it? Will it cause vision problems in the future??

I know these are questions I should ask a doctor, and I will when I take Parker in next.. but yeah, does anyone else have a child with this?

It could be his eyes arn't focusing properly. My DD is 2 1/2 and has been wearing glasses for the past year to correct a crossed eye that my doctor told me was 'normal' for infants and children. When I finally took her to a pediatric eye specialist the doctor asked me why I didn't bring her in when she was 6 months...I was furious. You think you can trust your pediatrician but I would ask for a refferral for a specialist, or if you have a PPO insurance plan like we were fortunate enough to have, skip the pediatrician and call an eye specialist. Better safe than sorry on a problem that could be easily corrected while your son is still little. Good luck.

my mom has a regular pupil and one that looks like a little dot...there is nothing wrong with her, except that she wears glasses (i wear glasses also and i have regular pupils)...i just called her and she said that she can see better out of her little eye lol...she said that it just doesnt adjust well to darkness...as long as there is light, she can see fine out of it...if you have any other questions, you can pm me and i will talk to her

Thanks so much for telling me of your moms situation. Parker's is a bit different, I think.. his is more that one is just average, normal sized and the other is so large...

I guess I will just keep an eye on it to make sure no changes occur.. and maybe take him to a specialist to really figure out if its causing him any problems

My dd was like that and she out grew it. It was more when she was under the age of 1. Her doctor said it was okay.

it could be a number of things my friends son had this and they thought it was a type of lazy eye where one just was slow to adjust to light or adjusted poorly turned out to be a neurological condition caused by swelling in his brain when he was born(he was premie) he also has a really droopy lid on his bad eye and weird spots in his iris  i dont remember what it was called

The thought of a neurological condition just terrified me when I read it.
Parker has an appointment with a specialist first thing Monday morning.
