Aniseikonia is defined as a difference in the and or shape of the ocular images corresponding to each of the two eyes.  To make a person see clearly, the images that are appearing on the retina and then transferred to the brain by the optic nerve have to be the same size and and have no overlapping of images.  If the signals or images do not concur, Aniseikonia occurs.  Patients wearing glasses with large differences in the prescription for the right and left eye are the most likely candidates to experience Aniseikonic symptoms.  The large difference n the amount of the refractive error is known as Anisometropia.  An Antimetropic Rx is most common in a prescription that has opposite signs for the right and left.  Remember the prescription can also be of the same sign except much stronger from right to left.
