What Is The Solution For My Eye Asymmetry?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am emailing because I have always noticed an asymmetry in my eye positioning, specifically my right eye being lower than my left. But recently i have noticed it is becoming worse, i noticed you have dealt with similar cases, if you could see the photos attached and advise me on possible solutions for my eye asymmetry and the severity of my case, it would be much appreciated.
A:You have eye asymmetry which is bone-based and is known as Vertical Orbital Dystopia. By an approximate measurement of the horizontal pupillary line of 7mms discrepancy would rate as severe. Definitive treatment planning would first require a 3D CT scan from which the type of corrective surgery can be determined.
