The realities, recognition, and remedial aspects of anisocoria at the bedside were highlighted by Adhikari et al.,1 which is almost similar to an earlier report from India.2 Since this condition involves patient safety and clinical assessment, we would like to touch upon 3 Ps (physiological, pathological, and pharmacological) of anisocoria. First and foremost is to elicit a thorough clinical history and then to assess the case in detail which not only rules out injuries, infections, instillation, or ingestion of medicines and instigating mechanisms but also helps rule out various other life-threatening conditions.
