Neurologist 's  Response

Obvious asymmetry of the cup-disc ratio in the 2 eyes of an individual is regarded as a strong sign of glaucoma, which is useful in the early diagnosis.Hence intraoccular pressure should be checked.

If pressure( occular hypertension) not controlled it would affect the eye sight

Hope this would help you
