Asymmetric Lids

Asymmetry of the eyelids is extremely common and it often can be corrected. Can you post or e-mail a picture or your eyelids while looking straight?

Please consider posting a photograph so we can understand your concern.

Without some type of photograph it is really impossible to interpret your concerns in a meaningful way.  An eye strip photo is very hard to identify but will allow up to better understand your concern.
