I'm 46 and have worn glasses since I was 10 and do not have a history of drug use or any serious illnesses or health conditions other than that I need to lose weight.

A few months ago, my left eye-not the right-started flaring up where my eye becomes scratchy and the pupil dilates in dim light only to go back to normal size in bright light. This whole thing started with a closed estachion tube on my left side followed by floaters in both eyes. After an eye exam where the doctor dilated my pupils, my left eye started to flare up which comes and goes. My eye also looks like it is bulging at times.

I saw a Glaucoma Specialist AND a Pupil Specialist and neither one dilated my eyes again but used some kind of yellow drops to look at my eyes. Both said that I have one pupil larger than the other since birth and do not have any signs of Glaucoma or Cataracts or Adies Tonic Pupil.

However, neither doctor saw me at a time when my eye was flaring up which is one reason I question the diagnosis!

I also question the diagnosis because I would have noticed this condition long ago if it were something I'd had for years! It is that uncomfortable and noticable!

I am worried this is a rare condition or symptoms for another disease or even a tumor.

Please help!
