Can Eye Pain Affect The Shape Of The Face?
I am 20 years old, I have complaints of right eye pain such as water, and gradually get smaller. my face shape is also different from the right cheek and the left cheek. So the right cheek is very thin. That difference occurred after my eyes began to hurt. Is it really related or not?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. In general, eye disease does not affect the shape of the face. Eye disease is usually more focused on disorders that are located in the eye only, except for example in cases of tumor or malignant eye cancer, where swelling occurs in the eye area that is so massive that it can even shift the position of the eyeball from its original place.
So when there is a change in the shape of the face, it must be examined again whether it is directly related to the eye pain that you experience, or caused by other conditions, such as sleeping position, swelling of the gums, nerve disorders, facial muscle weakness, and so forth.
For this, the first step that we recommend is to check yourself with a general practitioner first. This is important because to ensure your complaint, it requires direct observation and is equipped with information about yourself, how long you have been experiencing this condition, what triggers it, and whether there are special features such as redness, pain, etc. that can give diagnostic instructions. Handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this examination, including if it turns out you really need to be referred to an eye doctor, ENT doctor, dermatologist or even a dentist.
Meanwhile, don't worry too much, don't rub your eyes, make sure your eyes are free of dust, smoke and pollution, use a helmet when riding a motorcycle on the road, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
