The Cause Of The Left And Right Eyelid Folds Is Not Symmetrical?
Hello. The right side of the lid folds upward, and the left side withers the folds down slightly. So impressed by the left tier. I don’t know since when I was small or when, because I have only been feeling lately. And this does not interfere with my vision. I want to ask. The cause of the symmetrical eye is because of what, will it affect other people is it dangerous?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Conditions where the eyelids are not symmetrical between right and left, is normal and normal. If this has been going on for a long time and does not cause visual disturbances, it usually does not become a medical problem to worry about. The most frequent cause of asymmetric eyelids is heredity and changes in the constituent components of the skin of the eyelid that are associated with age.
However, there are also conditions that are not symmetrical eyelids, one is more likely to close (down) or more difficult to open than normal in medical language is called ptosis. This condition can affect only one eye but can also occur in both eyes. There are several diseases that can cause ptosis, such as:
Congenital Ptosis, which means ptosis experienced is a congenital disease experienced from birth or during the first year of life
Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune disease (immune cells attack body cells) that attacks nerve cells so that it interferes with the contraction of several muscles, and one of the muscles most commonly affected is the muscles in the eyelids
Bell's palsy, is a weakness of the facial muscles (not only the eyelids, but also other muscles on the cheeks and forehead. The cause is not yet known exactly, but is thought to be related to inflammation due to viral infection
Because there are several types of diseases that can cause these symptoms, if the symptoms have begun to interfere with your activities both for visual function, and for cosmetics, I recommend checking with a neurologist, so that additional tests can be carried out, such as physical examination, neurological examination, EMG (electromyography) examination, and laboratory blood tests, so that you can be sure of the disease you are experiencing, along with the most appropriate therapy. Likewise its effect on other organs and the degree of danger is very dependent on the cause of the disease.
If your eyelids turn red and swollen, you can try to do a cold compress, but if not swollen you need further treatment for this. So, hopefully you can help.
