How Can My Eye Asymmetry Be Treated?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have eye asymmetry. I have had it since i was young. What can be done for it? I have attached pictures for you review.

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending all of your pictures. Your eye asymmetry is due to a well known condition of VOD. (vertical orbital dystopia) The orbital box (bones that surrounds the eyes) is lower on the one side by 3 to 4mms. This is evidenced not only by the horizontal level of the eyes being different but also by the eyebrows that its lower on that side as well as the slightly flatter cheek in that side as well.

To understand how VOD is surgically treated I would refer you to one of my websites, and search under Vertical Orbital Dystopia where you can read and see how that is done.
