Any one ever have this? Just my right eye, i just noticed is twice as big as my left. Could this be from abx?

I read a bit online, some say stroke or brain tumor... I really think I would feel something...don't you?

Also said eyedrops....and I was using them today. But used them In Both eyes.

What do You think?

I was told it can be from toxic exposure.

YES-- I've had this. and it would happen frequently for about a year. I also used to feel lopsided vision, like i could see more out of one eye.

I don't know exactly what made it go away, but its gone, and I'm still alive :-) I also notice one eyelid droops more than the other. its VERY slight, no one would notice it but me.

I THINK its just from everything combine...I mean, think of all the crap we have in our bodies...

My next door neighbor has this. His eye doctor told him to get tested for lyme based on it. Sure enough, he has lyme disease.

The eye doctor has seen it a lot in people who turn out to have lyme.

So, since these folks are not on antibiotics when this happens to them, it is definitely the disease.

My poor neighbor was first sent to the ER, told he likely had a brain tumor, got him all afraid, etc. Then, after many tests, the ER sent him away and said he was OK.

He was ticked off! Ha. Then, he went to the eye doctor and was on his way to a diagnosis.

I took ONE Rifampin and woke up with one enlarged pupil and felt really toxin in the brain.

I can't risk a dilated eye since I was just diagnosed with "acute angle glaucoma".

I have an "Adie's Pupil". This is a fixed mid dilated pupil. I've had it since may. To get to this diagnosis I had an MRI and saw an opthalmologist that did a very extensive exam, including tests to rule out neurologic issues...
Anyways, my point is this.

SEE A DR!!!

They ruled out so many things, it would have been stupid to assume it was no big deal.

--------------------
I have Lyme - but it doesn't have me.

In my neighbor's case, the dilated pupil came and went. It was not permanently dilated for months on end.

I have a dilated pupil on the left side when my Bell's Palsy acts up. When the lid is droopy it shadows the eye some and this causes the dilation.

I had this for years, until I got my bart and babs under control. Septra was the drug that helped against my headaches and dilated pupil. Still to this day, when my tick infections flair, so does my pupil.
