Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive

Please read our important medical disclaimer.

Hi, I have got this strange problem; the picture I get into my right eye is approx. 30-50% smaller than the picture I get into my left eye. Both pictures are otherwise perfect. My brain have severe problems in processing this into one picture; especially in bright light. Neither my optician nor my eye doctor can find any specific fault. Do you have any idea what is causing this?

Most likely, one eye is more farsighted than the other. If you are young, you may need a cycloplegic refraction (eyeglass lens determination performed after instilling anticholinergic eyedrops). You should visit your Eye M.D. to find out the best solution for you.
