Thanks for your Question


Simple anisometropia is a common thing and most of the time it doesn't need any treatment other than glasses. Some patients have high anisometropia in which the difference between both eyes is more than 2.00 D.

Most of these patients complain of headache and double vision even with glasses and those patients who required clear lens extraction with intraocular lens implantation.
In your case, which is simple one, just use glasses.
