What can I do to fix my right eye?
Thank you for your question. have another orbital exam. Serial orbital exams over time are helpful to reassure you, and also to pick up on subtle findings
See oculoplastic specialist
Minor asymmetries in eye size and shape are very common. The problem could be eyeball position difference or it could be that you have slight right lower eyelid retraction, likely genetic. It may be possible to slightly raise the right lower eyelid but need personal consultation to determine eligibility. See following link for more information.
You have taken the correct path to rule out serious problems in the orbit. Certainly if you notice changes over time, it would be worthwhile to have another orbital exam. Serial orbital exams over time are helpful to reassure you, and also to pick up on subtle findings and measurements that may otherwise be overlooked as normal variation. Thyroid problems, previous trauma, sinus problems, orbital masses or vascular lesions can cause proptosis or enophthalmos - and most of these problems would have been seen on a CT scan. There are some surgical options available to you depending upon specifics of your examination. You may want to re-visit and oculoplastic surgeon for a follow up examination and measurements - and specifics of what can be done to enhance the symmetry of your eyes. Best wishes.
