Absolutely not: No relationship whatsoever. Please see a fully qualified specialist Orthodontist for an Initial Examination (usually complimentary) to discuss your malocclusion, treatment choices and to discuss your concerns. Please have your eyes examined by an eye specialist, an Ophthalmologist, to assure that there is no pathology.
