    Hi everyone. When I was watching T.V, I decided to cover my left eye and look through it and then did it with the left(for no apparent reason). However, I realised that my right eye sees brighter than the other. The left is less bright but the right seems to have more contrast.

    Has this ever happened to you? Everything seems fine when I'm looking through both eyes, but I'm just curious to know why this is.

    Eye hope there's an explanation for this and i'm looking forward to seeing your replies. Thanks in advance.

    OK. You definitely have an eye problem

    Now I'm confused. Do you really have a problem, or did you just set this whole thing up so you could test that 'eye-I' wordplay on us?

    It could be that your right eye is a tiny bit stronger than your left eye. I think it's quite common to have one stronger eye, and it's usually harmless. If you're concerned, it might be worth getting an eye test and mentioning it to an optician, just to be on the safe side, though. Especially as it doesn't take long, is fairly cheap, it's unlikely anyone on here is qualified to say for certain, and it's not worth risking your eye sight.

    Also, I quite liked the pun in the title

    No. It is a genuine problem. Sorry for making a spectacle of myself and I hope no one lashes out with my wordplay, but lens not make it obvious to everyone.

    Ah I see.. I will go to the opticians. I'm surprised no one suggested that.
