Hello,

This is Maria - and I'm Nelson :) Nice meeting you all!

Maria is 14 years old - she's been always healthy, active and happy; but as you can see in the photos, she's having some trouble with one of her pupils, which appears smaller than the other one.

This has also happened 2 months ago; I called a vet, he checked her over and gave me Cylocort, an ointment that I appllied on her eye for a week. The difference disappeared then.

Now it's here again.
I'm considering calling an ophthalmologist.

I as just wondering if any of you have heard of this symptom. I checked the internet for similar situations, but there are many possibilities, and some of them point to other symptoms she does not have.

Thank you so much for you input. And I'm sorry for any english mistakes! Not my first language :)

Thank you and nice meeting you all again :)
Nelson

Hello, cat lovers :)

First of all, thank you for reading my post! It's about Maria, my lovely 14 y/o cat.
Second, I'm sorry for any English mistakes; it's not my first language...

I already posted about this a week ago, but since I haven't received any replies, I decided to explain the situation with more details.

Maria showed anisocoria (uneven pupils - constricted left pupil) about two months ago. I called a vet, and he prescribed Ciprofloxacin (cream) for her eye.
The uneven pupils disappearead in 5 days.

It's been 7 days that she presented the same symptom again. Same eye. Also, I noticed drooping of the eyelid, subtle sinking of the eyeball into the eye socket, and protrusion of the third eyelid.
I was almost calling an ophthalmologist when I also noticed her shaking her head and tilting her left ear down, as if something was bothering her. I called my vet again, he came over and found out an otitis. He said the anisocoria might happen due to this fact. He prescribed an antibiotic, and an anti-inflammatory.

Now it's been 4 days that she's been treated with these medicaments. She's not showing discomfort with her ear anymore. But... the uneven pupils are still there. Same size, just a little better than before.
I was wondering if anyone has been through this with their cat... Should I start thinking about a neurologist? Maybe I should wait for the completion of this treatment?
Any comments are deeply appreciated!
Thank you!

Yes, I definitely would follow up with an ophthalmologist.
I have a young cat that has cerebellar hypoplasia and has permanently dilated pupils from running into walls and doors at full run chasing after my two other cats that I adopted the same time as I did him when they were all kittens. Maybe your kitty had a similar head injury that affected that eye only like David Bowie. He had one eye that the pupil would not constrict. It happened when he was a teen and got into a fist fight.
