Damage to the iris sphincter

Hello. 1 month ago I had blunt trauma to my left eye and after that trauma my left eye's pupil got bigger than my right eye. Ophthalmologist said that my left eye has little tear to its iris sphincter muscle at 16 o'clock and she said that it wont recover. My injured eye is responding to the light and it becomes almost same sized when I'm under direct sun light. But its still noticeably different sized when there is no direct sunlight. My question is will it recover after some time? Maybe after 2 3 months?

This has been discussed at length. Use the search feature and archives and read about "traumatic iridoplegia or tramatic mydriasis.  Sometime it gets better some times it doesn't time will tell if at 6 months it's still bigger its likely permanent.

Tnx for answering. There is one more thing, after blunt trauma My left eye (injured) started to see more floaters than my normal eye. Ophthalmologist used pupil dilating drop and tested my retina, but she didn't find any retina tearing. These floaters are kinda brown colored and longer than normal ones. Its more noticeable when I see clear sky or bright backdound. Is it dangerous for eye? Will these floaters decrease after some time?

I have this too after a blunt eye injury. Not all the time, but the dark spots come and go. I presumed it was iris tissue loss. But not sure.

What you should watch for is sudden increase of more floaters, flashes of light or loss of peripheral vision.   You can search "floaters" also.
