What Type of Vertical Orbital Dystopia Surgery Do I Need?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I managed to take a very symmetrical picture of my face and it shows that I definitely have vertical orbital dystopia, and not just facial asymmetry like I used to think. I have for a long while been conscious about my eye asymmetry so I’m wondering what the treatment could be? Thank you for answering.

A:To determine if and what surgery may be effective for VOD the workup includes a true straight on facial picture (not with the head bent slightly down) and a 3D CT scan of the face. Until then  only the general concepts of VOD surgery can be discussed but not if it would be effective for you.
