Hi,

A mild dilatation of pupil is normal before or during sex. This is a normal response of body. What you are describing is anisocoria (difference in pupil size of both eyes). The commonest causes of one eye pupil getting dilated are an injury to the eye, a lesion in brain (trauma, bleeding etc), if you are taking any medicines/drugs etc.

If you are not having any accompanied symptoms like headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of consciousness and your pupil size returns to normal, there is no need to worry. Just keep a watch fir next time. But if the pupil size does not return to normal or if you have other associated symptoms, then you need to show your doctor to rule out other possibilities.

Hope this information is helful

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
