Uneven Eyes. Would It Help if I Wore my Glasses More Often?

Yea I read some questions about correcting for eye height and I thought of this. What do you think? Also, I have noticed a sound akin to a paper towel ripping some nights as I lay my head or turn my head on my pillow. It has a subtle feeling like something shifts. I notice my teeth dont meet the same way on consecutive days ( I notice in morning). I think you would call it occlusion. The effect is worse if I sleep on one side of my face. Problem is, sleeping on my back makes my back hurt.

If you happen to be squinting, wearing glasses might help reduce the strain on the eyes. If you have asymmetrical eyes, you may want to consider seeing a qualified oculofacial surgeon for uneven eyes.

I am unsure of your exact question. Are you asking if wearing your glasses would help with differences in eye height? If so the answer is No.You should go in and see a good Oral/Maxillofacial Surgeon and they would upon examination be able to see if you have an occlusion and should be able to further discuss your complaints.
