Notice my left look smaller
Hi, I have posted before with Dry Eye issues but I have noticed recently that my 'Dry Eye' does not open as fully as my good eye.  I have been to opticians & the eye doctor and they can not see anything wrong apart from the dry eye.  I only noticed this through photographs, when I ask my friends they can not see anything wrong and say everyone has a smaller eye.  To my 'Dry Eye' looks really heavy and does not open as fully as the right one.

Any ideas?  Thanks

Dry eyes should not cause one eyelid to droop more than theother. A eyelid that hangs lower than the other has ptosis. If this is something new it needs to be investigated. See an oculoplastic surgeon ophthalmologist. Take in old photos as well as recent photos that show "before" drooping and "after" drooping.

Hi there,

I have the same problem. Although I must say in my case the story is different.

About a year ago they found I have an imporatn retina detachment near the nasal area. I never noticed it because my front vision is normal, only my field of view has reduced. Further studies showed I have high pressure on that eye and I was prescribed ot use eye drops (Combigan, Spain)

Since then, I noticed the eyelid of that eye does not open as much as the other. Exactly what moonbean describes.

I was looking at old pictures and I did not have this problem. I also noticed it is not every day the same.

Any ideas? Many thanks in advance
