The Right Eyelid Drops And The Left Eyelid Looks Like It Is Glaring?
Doctor, I am a 39-year-old mother, I feel the difference with my eyes about 1 year ago, my right eye has dropped while the left eyelid is up or staring, what is the cause? Sometimes I like pain in the inner ear but not often, how to treat it? Can it be treated? If it is better to see a doctor, okay?
Hello Mira Mustika Arum,
Unequal eye slits or unequal right and left eye height can result from the following disorders:
Genetic factors, generally have been there from childhood
Aging that causes sagging skin around the eyes
Bell's palsy disease
Eksoftalmos (more prominent position of the eyeball): Graves' disease, orbital cellulitis, orbital tumor, orbital fracture, etc.
Ptosis (upper eyelids abnormally appearing more downward than normal side eyes): nerves III cranial nerve disorders, palpebral levator muscle disorders, history of eye surgery, etc.
It is necessary to do a direct examination by a doctor (especially an ophthalmologist) to determine whether the asymmetrical eye is caused by one of the lower eyelids, because one of the eyeballs is more prominent, or a combination of both. A thorough examination of the two eyes from the front to the back is needed to determine whether there are abnormalities in the eyeball, orbital cavity, including the muscles of the eyeball and eyelid.
Handling is certainly based on the results of the examination and causes the underlying complaint. Actions such as botox injection and blepharoplasty surgery can be used to fix the eyelid that has dropped cosmetically to match the other side. Meanwhile, if found bulging eyes, generally first overcome the cause.
Complaints of pain in the ear can be caused by many things, for example:
The spread of pain due to interference with tissue outside the ear
For complaints of ear pain you can consult an ENT specialist. Eye and ear complaints may be symptoms of a disease that gives these symptoms. It is better to do an examination with a doctor so that it can be evaluated one by one to exclude possible and dangerous diseases. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
