A female asked:

how can you treat a pair of eyes that is small on the left but big on the right without any eyelid surgery?

You can't: There are many reasons for asymmetry in the appearance of the eyes. Virtually all would require a surgery to improve. Occasionally, Botox or a filler may improve the appearance though.

Need more info: I assume you are talking about asymmetry in the apertures (openings between the upper and lower lids.) this is usually due to a drooping eyelid on one side and a compensatory elevation of the lid on the other side. I am not aware of any treatment other than surgery.

Possibly: Allergic shiners are the result of passive congestion of a venous plexus because of nasal congestion. Allergic shiners, while typical in allergy, are not always caused by allergy. If one is allergic then use of nasal steroid spray may be helpful to reduce them.

Vascular leaks: The retina is very thin, very fragile but richly endowed with blood vessels and it sits on another carpet of blood vessels. Re-attachment surgery has to restructure a detached retina in the presence of all of this vascular richness and fragility and sometimes smaller vessels can leak or even vessels at the site of entry into the eye. This will clear usually with time.

Treat symptoms first: You may offer comfort care with rest, fluids and medication for now and monitor his progress, depending on what type of surgery was performed, it is difficult to accurately guide you perfectly on how to move forward. Contact the surgeon if your son is not improving over the next few days. Sooner if he is not resoonding to your "comfort care.".
