Anisocoria can be an indicator of FeLV presence, though I don’t think it 
indicates progression of the disease in any way that we know about. Ember 
developed anisocoria almost five years ago, when she was seven. I haven’t taken 
her to a specialist, but we ruled out toxo. At times, the vet has thought that 
the pupil has gotten a bit smaller, but I’ve never seen a real change.
