    I read this article on Wikipedia – it says anisocoria is harmless. For those who don’t know, anisocoria is the condition where the two pupils are of unequal size.

     

    The patient must feel symptoms like visual disturbances, glare, diplopia etc. So why is it considered harmless?

    Maybe because it’s not harmful in the sense of ‘harm’…it’s just causing some difficulty in vision, not specifically harm

      You mean the etiology may be harmful but the result is not so harmful – right?
