Causes[edit]

It also could be results of trauma, surgical intervention (e.g., cataract extraction), or inflammation (or the effects or prior inflammation) within the eye (uveitis). Different than Horner's syndrome, and similar to physiological anisocoria, a patient with damage in the dilatator muscle will show anisocoria on conditions of lower light, where the unaffected pupil will react normally, increasing its size.[1]
