Is there any kind of treatment for eyes? One of which is smaller than the other one?

Treatment for small eyes

Thank you for your question.  First of all, the reason for your eyes appearing small must first be determined through a clinical exam.  One eye can appear smaller than the other due to malposition of the eyelids.  For example, your right eye may appear smaller if your right eyelid is droopy compared to the left eyelid.  Conversely, if your left eyelid is retracted compared to the right, the right eye may also appear smaller.  There are other causes  and the most appropriate next step would be to consult with an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon to determine the exact cause.

Eye treatment

There are different treatments to create a more homogenous appearance to the eyes.  These options range for least invasive to most invasive.  The least invasive option is Botox which (generally speaking) would help to even out muscle contractions in the areas of the eyes or upper third for the face. The most invasive option is the option of surgery.  Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can help to minimize fullness in the upper and/or lower eyelids.  

Keep in mind that undergoing any surgical procedure requires careful attention to detail and consideration for different options.  Consider obtaining several opinions before moving forward with any given procedure.  And always trust your face to a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or a board-certified plastic surgeon with very extensive browlift and blepharoplasty experience.
