Anisocoria

I was on Lexapro for a few years. When I was weaning off of it I developed Anisocoria. Its been a few of years now, and I am noticing it is returning.  Do you think this could be residual? I have an astigmatism in this eye as well.

Lexapro does not cause aneisocoria; neither does astigmatism.  as many as 10% of the population have some degree of aneisocoria without other disease, in most cases it no different than having hands/feet slighly different in size.

However aneisocoria that develops should be evaluated by a neuro-ophthalmologist if possible. Find one near you at www.geteyesmart.org

Thank you for your reply.  My insert from the Lexapro lists the Anisocoria as a side effect that is why I asked. I will check out the website.  Thanks again!
