Question about opaque colored lenses?


Someone was asking me if he could get opaque colored lenses if he has physiologic anisocoria (unequal pupils). If so, how would it work?
----------

Opaque contacts should cover up the pupils and make them look alike.  (+ info)

Eye Problem here! Ca you help?


What are the best ways to hide anisocoria that is physicological? Without getting fully opaque contacts, what are some ways to hide this or make the pupils harder to be seen or noticed at all?
----------

opaque contacts are the best way, othewise, wear tinted glasses.  (+ info)

Question about custom colored contacts!?


have a condition called anisocoria my doctor told me. This condition, although benign, causes an inequality in the sizing of the two pupils, thus one is smaller than the other. Would getting custom colored contacts "mask" this abnormality? If so, about how much are a pair of custom colored contacts?
----------

I would think that is something you would have to discuss with your Dr. who would then refer you to someone who specializes in those types of lenses.

There is probably no fixed price being as each order is custom work.  (+ info)

----------

Tinted contacts such as Fresh Looks to a great degree block the appearance of the iris behind the contact lens and create an artificial pupil where the color stops on the contact. It is possible that this artificial pupil may significantly hide the appearance of the larger pupil and make your pupils look more symmetrical.  (+ info)

That is a very interesting question. I imagine that the one that is made for the abnormal pupil is a little more opaque than the other one, thus creating the illusion that the two are equal.  (+ info)

I have a 3 months old daughter and since birth I have noticed that her pupils are slightly uneven in dim light


My partner doesn't see it but im sure i do and can see it in photo's. She does not have a droopy eyelid and seems totally normal in all other respects. Does anybody have a child with uneven pupils (anisocoria)?
No she hasn't seen a neurologist. Her eyes were checked at the hospital at birth and at her 2 months check up, that is why im not even sure that they are uneven. She was a little cross eyed and I thought maybe this caused them to seem uneven. My partner can't see it but im sure they are not the same size. She did have the cord around her arm and neck at birth? I have been doing some research and it seems it can be either physiological anisocoria or Horners syndrome. Has anyone had a child with anisocoria or horners syndrome and what was the outcome?
----------

Has your baby been seen by a neurologist at the hospital where she/he was born? Nurses or doctors test babies' reflexes and look for these kind of things. If you haven't already--ask the pediatrician and if they say it's not a big deal, you can either trust them or take your baby to a neurologist to make sure all is fine.   (+ info)

How natural and realistic would custom fitted colored lenses look on one's eyes?


I have an unserious abnormality called "anisocoria" which is really the difference in the sizes of my two pupils. I have gone to several doctors, and nothing is wrong with my eyes medically; appearance-wise, there is. My doctor said that there are custom fitted colored lenses out there which should "mask" this abnormality. I am asking how natural and realistic do custom fitted lenses look on one's eyes. Also, what is the price range for such lenses?
Do not tell me that since there is nothing wrong medically that I should just ignore this. I asked a specific question.
These are custom fitted colored contact lenses I am talking about.
----------

While I am not familiar with your specific condition, I think they would probably look very realistic. Especially being a custom made lens, I am sure that the person making it would make sure it looked very realistic. Good luck!  (+ info)

I need help with getting contacts!?


I have a beign abnormality in one of my eyes (right eye) which is a problem with the dilator of the iris. The problem isthat the dialator does not function properly, thus making the right pupil smaller than the left. I believe this is called anisocoria, if I am not mistakened. Well, my question is are there any possibilities out there that can conceal this abnormality in the sizing of my two pupils? I have tried a free trial pair of Freshlook Colorblends, but it did not work well- it actually annunciated the problem. Besides, my normal irises do not have fancy designs on them, and the Freshlook Colorblends do, making them look fake. Are there any solutions to this? Are there colored contacts out there that work well the best and look realistic and maybe a smaller "pupil hole" in the colored contacts?

Your pupils will always have to be visible or else light won't be able to enter.

Even if colored lenses were available with a smaller clear center to wear on one eye...you would look pretty strange with a bigger iris...( colored part)..

Sorry, but you will just have to live with it I think.  (+ info)

Physiological Anisocoria Question (Eye specialists please read!)?


Is it normal for people with physiological anisocornia to have the larger pupil switch between eyes and go on/off being equally sized?

Why is this? Thank you.
----------

20% of people have anisocoria (one pupil larger that the other) normally. Different light and focusing can change the size of the pupil and it would be hard to tell differences in size at that time of change.  (+ info)
