Can you fix anisocoria?
Depending on the type of anisocoria, in some cases, it is possible to fix.
The treatment plan for anisocoria depends on the type of anisocoria, and it's underlying causes.
Physiologic anisocoria is usually harmless and therefore, typically doesn't require any treatment.
Mechanical anisocoria, on the other hand, may require surgery to correct any damage caused by the trauma. If the trauma is caused by an underlying medical condition, the doctor will create a plan of treatment based around this.
If there are symptoms of pathological anisocoria, the doctor will look at any underlying causes before proceeding with treatment. These can include a brain aneurysm, tumour or stroke. CT and MRI scans will be used as soon as possible to determine these causes.
Anisocoria resulting in uneven pupils, which then causes unequal accommodation, can be treated with bifocals or reading glasses. A doctor may even recommend photochromic lenses to reduce light sensitivity.
