What a short word I am in this world

Only a few letters long

But many people still mistake me for my twin brother

We may sound the same, but trust me,

Our meanings are very different

Are you still confused? Then let me help you with a few hints

Add a letter to me and you can find my twin brother

Add 4 letters to me and I may have to wear an eyepatch

Now tell me, what am I?
