Make an appointment to see an EyeMD ophthalmologist.  Possible causes include horner's syndrome, adies tonic pupil, 3rd cranial nerve palsy, traumatic injury to eye, congenital pupil deformity.  You're thankful, I'm sure, that the CT was normal  - that should take a load off your mind but still go ahead and see the ophthalmologist.
