Sunken eyes are not due to ear surgery.

Your sunken eyes are not due to your ear surgery.  You should see a board certified plastic surgeon and have your concerns addressed.

   Concerns of sunken eyes in a young individual may be nothing, but this should be evaluated.  It is unlikely that an operation for your ears would have any effect on your eyes.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
