Hello I am wondering if my wonky/asymmetrical eye alignment can be corrected with surgery? The eye and the tear duct are not aligned, as you can see from my picture. Please let me know if this can be fixed surgically as this has caused me a lot of upset throughout my life. Thanks in advance

It is not at all uncommon to have some asymmetry between the eyes. You will notice this more than anyone else because you see your face more than anyone else. I would not recommend any surgical treatment for the asymmetry of your eyes, as the difference is fairly minor and surgery is not without risk, including the possibility of your eyes becoming more asymmetric.
