This is a photo I took of his eye.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In may I noticed a black spot, and when I questioned him he has not gotten hurt and or received any injuries to the head/face. He has no pain in his eye. He does get weak at the knees and finds the need to sit down. The blackness looks to be growing and the pupil has now changed shape. Not sure what this is.

Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

This is called as Aniscoria. This has varied causes from nothing significant to life threatening. With the changes in the eye and history of weakness in knees, I would like to rule out anything related to brain and the nerve which controls the pupil (occulomotor nerve). Glaucoma (where the eye ball pressure increases) can also cause this. Inflammation of the iris termed uveitis also is responsible for these findings. He should be examined as early as possible. He may consider going to either emergency room or urgent care clinic for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
