Is Orbital Decompression for Asymmetry of the Globes Possible?
I have one buldgy (L)eye, likely d/t poor maxillary support and congenital anomaly. One surgeon recommended malar implant, but indicated it may only improve symmetry slightly. Another suggests autologus fat transfer to cheek, which is essentially the same(?). Could I simply get a unilateral decompression instead? No thyroid eye disease indicated from hormone tests and MRI though. Or perhaps an ocular implant? My eyes were normal just 4 months ago. So there must be space there?
