My right eye lid is drooping more than the left side why could that be?

My right eye lid is drooping more than the left side why could that be?

Multiple causes: It depends on exactly what is wrong. A droopy appearing eyelid may be caused by excess upper eyelid skin or drooping of the eye brow. It could be something called ptosis which means the actual edge of the eyelid droops down. There are a number of causes of ptosis. You should see an eye doctor who treats eyelid problems to determine the cause and possible treatment options. ...Read more

Leave it alone: There is no reason for alarm. These things happen to everyone. As long as you are otherwise healthy, and not concerned about medicine side effects, you will be alright. If you are not that healthy or you use suspicious medicines, it may help to have lab tests or a medicine list review. ...Read more

See an eye doctor: The question is: "why is the eyelid different?" is this something that has been present since birth? Was there trauma to the lid? An infection? Each cause has a different possible treatment. Depending on what your eye doctor finds, there are several options that may be available to improve the appearance and function of your eyelid. ...Read more

I;ve noticed that the eyelashes on my right eye lid are not as sensitive as the lashes on my left eye lid. Should i be worried?

I;ve noticed that the eyelashes on my right eye lid are not as sensitive as the lashes on my left eye lid. Should i be worried?

Eyelash sensitivity: I'd start with a nightly warm wet compress of the lids on both sides, and maybe some gentle cleaning of the lashes with a few drops of diluted baby shampoo to see if that helps. If not, or if there is a bump or ulcer, or bleeding or lash loss that is new, you should see an ophthalmologist for further evaluation. ...Read more

I have two red spots on the white of my right eye, one under my eye lid and one on the right side, what are they? Should I be worried?

I have two red spots on the white of my right eye, one under my eye lid and one on the right side, what are they? Should I be worried?

Benign hemorrhage : If the spots developed suddenly and are painless, they are probably just conjunctival hemorrhages. Eye rubbing or a good cough can cause them. If you are on a blood thinning drug like Aspirin or Coumadin (warfarin) they can get happen more frequently. The spots should slowly go away over the next week or so. If they don't, or if you start having pain, see an eye doc. ...Read more

Facial : Facial nerve injury may occur secondary to tumor, surgery, or bell's palsy, which is a viral syndrome. Functional and aesthetic changes occur from loss of the motor function of the facial nerve and autonomic function of the facial nerve (innervation to parotid salivary gland). Major symptoms include inability to raise the brow (frontalis muscle), inability to close the eye fully (orbicularis occuli muscle), inability to smile or raise the lip (zygomatic and levator muscles of the cheek), and inability to tightly close the mouth (orbilularis oris muscle). In patient s with bell's palsy, it is common that the nerves regrowing into the tear gland get "confused", resulting in crocodile tears (the eye starts tearing at the smell of food). The best and most complicated treatment is nerve grafting, where functional nerves are attched from the base of the brain or functional muscles on the other side of the face.To the non-fuctioning muscles. This generally musct be done in the firat year after the injury. As the involved muscles undergo a pricess known as denervation atrophy. The second most effective surgery is muscle trasfer and use of a gold implant. Slips of functioning muscle that don't depend on the facial nerve for function are transfered to the non-functioning muscles. This can be done for blink (temporalis muscle), and smile (temporalis msucle). The gold weight helps to lose the eye, as the muscle that opens the eye is still intact (levator occuli). Other procedures can help the aesthetic complications. These include browlift, facelift, fat transfer, and relaxation of the opposing side of the face with botx cosmetic. I would recommend that you seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience in this area. ...Read more
