How Can My Vertical Orbital Dystopia Be Improved?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have vertical orbital dystopia and I was hoping to receive resources for scheduling a head CT scan.

I’ve read your “Outcome from Comprehensive Six Step Approach to Vertical Orbital Dystopia Correction” case study, and I found it fascinating. Are there any other available resources out there regarding your VOD treatment?

I would also love to see a gallery of more results, especially in regards to seeing patients who also opted to have upper eyelid ptosis repair.

A: Your VOD is too severe for this form of aesthetic VOD surgery. The left eye is more than 5mms lower than the right eye and can not be significantly improved by this camouflage approach to VOD correction. You need an orbital box osteotomy technique through a frontal craniotomy to have an effective change.
