How Can Vertical Orbital Dystopia Be Fixed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I shave one eye lower than the other one and it has been so since birth. After researching on the internet I believe I have Vertical Orbital Dystopia. What can be done to make my eyes more symmetrical in appearance?

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. To learn in detail what can be done for moderate VOD I would refer you to one of my websites, where you can place in the search box the term Vertical Orbital Dystopia and read the various articles about its surgical treatment. The first step in the process begins with obtaining a 3D CT scan of your face so the measured differences between the two orbital boxes can be determined.
