right Eye Bigger Than Other

Hello everybody !!

I have a big problem though its not life threatening and may seem a little silly but as I stated my right eye is bigger than than the left.

I do have a minor astigmatism but wear glasses just for long periods of concentration.

I have been to see a specialist and he says my eyes are equal and I thought he was wrong but he actually is as I thought my right eye lid was drooping and its actually from the bottom of my lid to the top of my eye that its bigger, so I dont have a droopy lid but my eye lid is far bigger on my right, My right eye also feels really tired and feels like there is something in it .I know people have noticed it and I am so self consious about it that it is really bothering me and knocking my confidence .


Please can anybody help with this ?? ....pretty please.



Jenny

I have the same problem!! So if you know, let me know. LOL. My left eyelid is like wider, so that it looks as if that eye is bigger, but it's really not. I have no clue what it is. May I ask your age??

Re: right Eye Bigger Than Other

Hey

I am 29 and its driving me nuts, have searched the web and found nothing !!

Have been referred by my doctor to see an eye specialist at my local hospital but I know it will take weeks or probably months so I am going to pay and go private I think !!

How old are you and where are you from ??

Re: right Eye Bigger Than Other

jenster2005 Hi" If I am understanding you properly, it sounds like a slight closure on your bigger eye on the outside corner would help you. It is called tarrsorrophay .Pinch the outer corner and look in the mirror and see what it does for you.It should bring the lower lid up a little. Or, possibly a canthopexy which which means pulling the lower lid up by making a small cut right at the corner and repositioning. Go to sites called canthopexy and also tarrsorrophay. Godd luck to you.

Re: right Eye Bigger Than Other

Hey

Jenster here again, I have found out a have cyst on my right eye, actually there are 2 underneath my eye lid , I am having them removed in a 5 min op by the eye surgeon at my local hospital and I have got my doctor to write me letter as I am really quite depressed about the look of my right eye and , the cyst has not been there for 3 years, I had a cyst removed about 10 years ago and am wondering if having it removed then ( which meant my eye lid being cut open) made my eye / lid go funny then !!no doubt the surgeon will just say I am being paranoid and silly but it bother's me from when I get up to when I sleep and if I can get it sorted I just know my life can change !!

Thanks for the advice I have been given and for the junior member I can't reply by e-mail I am afraid as you are not allowed on here. Jen X

Re: right Eye Bigger Than Other

this just happened to me the last few days... i felt my left eye was a little "weaker" than the right and was slightly smaller. i could easily open my eyes a little wider to get them the same size, so i really dont know whats wrong. could it just be staring at the tv too much or something? when i look up with both eyes, they are the same size but when i look down, the left eyelid droops down a little farther. just afraid its gonna get worse than better... any advice is appreciated
