Aneisometrophia describes the significant difference between one eyes prescription to the other eye. This is typical when one eye is long sighted and the other eye is short sighted.

Those who suffer with Aneisometrophia, will most likely be affected with double vision as the brain will have difficulty putting two perspectives together to see just one image thus creating a distorted view. Spectacle correction may not only cause the person to have a difference in an image magnification but it is likely to also be uncomfortable and cause eyestrain and headaches.
The most effective way to correct Aneisometrophiais is through contact lenses as they don’t enlarge or reduce the size of objects, but focus a natural sized picture on the retina at the back of the eye.
