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
