About four months ago I was shot in the left eye (my eye was closed and the bebe hit me diagonally) with an airsoft gun, my eye doctor said I was in the clear but the effected pupil is still slightly bigger then the non-effected one, is this most likely permanent? Or will it go back to normal with time?
There are two main types of iritis: acute and chronic. They differ in numerous ways. Acute iritis is a type of iritis that can heal independently within a few weeks. If treatment is provided, acute iritis improves quickly. Chronic iritis can exist for months or years before recovery occurs. Chronic iritis does not respond to treatment as well as acute iritis does. Chronic iritis is also accompanied by a higher risk of serious visual impairment.
Hope your eye gets well soon, or else please see a specialist, take care, be safe & well, please.
you may have what is known as a blown pupil, I had it happen with an eye injury too. Mine was really pronounced at first but got a bit better with time and isn't that noticeable now. Nine also had a small flattened part, but that eventually fixed itself, but pupil is still slightly larger than other eye. David bowie also has one. You can see a specialist like Rajive suggested if it is really bothering you.
