Lazy eye look at 18
- Your photograph suggests that mild levator palpebrae ptosis - drooping of the upper lids from stretching of the muscle that lifts the lids.
- Causes? Genetics, severe swelling, blunt injury, medications.
- The asymmetry in your eyes is real but subtle. No one has perfectly symmetric eyes.
- See a Board Certified Plastic or Oculoplastic Surgeon familiar with this condition for evaluation , measurements and correction - assuming my diagnosis is correct.
- Surgery opens the eyes again, correcting the downward drift.
