Ok. The specs aren't anything concerning?

Ok. And the dilation of the pupil from eye drops?
I used them at 3am for an allergy attack in both eyes. Then added more to one eye this morning around 9am. It is still slightly dilated in a non lit room at 2pm. In bright them the pupil will return to a small size like the other eye but when in a dark room, one pupil is larger then the other
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.

I am guessing it has been like this for a long time you just didn't notice it

slightly different size pupils is normal

it wouldn't hurt to get checked though

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
What are things it could be?
When I put drops into the other eye, then that pupil is the larger one. It seems to be related to the drops.

If it were anything else more serious, you would have other symptoms.

so it can't really be anything else

Ok. I googled it and it said tumor and other very scary things. Would this be the only sign of a brain tumor
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 8 months ago.

absolutely not

you would have other symptoms like headache or neurological symptoms

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok. In bright light the both go to the right size. In dark room..one appears more dilated but that could be the allergy drops?? I have very bad allergies.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
