Ive one eye that is lower than the other, not on the same

Resolved Question:

I've one eye that is lower than the other, not on the same line.

I also included a picture of my eyes here:

Can you tell me if it's palpebral ptosis, anisocoia or something else?

I've this problem probably since I was born.

It doesn't look to me like a muscle problem, is it possible it's a malformation on the skull itself?

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

hi
Thanks for waiting
THis is not a ptosis, this is actually a slight malformation of the skull- the entire eye socket is a little lower. As you know, faces are not completely symmetrical- people have eyes higher and lower one side and the same with the ears and nostrils.
It may be more obvious in some people that in others, as in your case.

I hope that I provided you with excellent service.
Please leave positive feedback if I did

Is there anything I can do to solve this problem? I'm 35 years old and I never had a girlfriend, in part I think because of this. I hope you can help me.

Expert:  Doctor Natasha replied 3 years ago.
I don't think that this makes a difference in you finding a partner- because from the picture you sent me, your face is otherwise is fine.
But the person who can help you is a head and neck surgeon
They may be able to break the orbital bone and reposition your eye.
But this is a potential dangerous surgery which may cause nerve damage or even eye damage.
But they can help you.
Please fracture their faces in accidents all of the time

I hope that I provided you with excellent service.
