How to Fix Asymmetrical Eyes


There are several ways to fix asymmetrical eyes. Some methods are surgical, while others are non-surgical. Surgical procedures include Botox and Thread lifts. Nonsurgical options include facial exercises. These exercises help strengthen supporting tissues around the eyes, giving them a natural lift. These exercises are practical and low-maintenance.

Nonsurgical solutions

Asymmetrical eyes can have a drastic effect on a person’s appearance, but there are nonsurgical solutions to make the eyes look more symmetrical. There are two main methods of correcting asymmetrical eyelids, both of which have risks and benefits.

Surgical solutions

There are several surgical solutions available to fix asymmetrical eyes. During a consultation, Dr. Sorensen will discuss your options and explain the best way to correct your condition. Various techniques are available, including lower eyelid stabilization and elevation. Other surgical solutions include transconjunctival eyelid surgery. The goal of this surgery is to enhance vision and improve the appearance of your eyes.


Having asymmetrical eyes can be a sign of a more serious underlying condition. If the asymmetry persists or progresses to the point of difficulty opening the eye, Botox can help fix the problem. This neurotoxin blocks nerve signals and relaxes the eyelids’ muscles.

Thread lifts

Thread lifts are a minimally invasive surgery that can lift the eyelids asymmetrically. The procedure has gained popularity with patients and practitioners because it is minimally invasive and has low risks. However, it does not come without side effects, and you should talk to your doctor about any risks before proceeding.


Asymmetry in the eyes is heritable in many cases. This is because it is observed in many crosses between parents with similar phenotypes. Both male and female parents contribute about equal amounts to the eye-side frequency. In addition, some people have asymmetrical eyes due to a combination of genetics and environment.

Medical conditions

Various medical conditions can cause asymmetrical eyes. For example, excessive sun exposure can change the skin around the eyes. This can affect one side of the face more than the other. Also, certain neurological conditions, such as Bell’s palsy, can cause one eye to be lower than the other. Traumatic facial injuries may also lead to asymmetry in the eyelids.


Asymmetrical eyes can be challenging to hide, but there are ways to fix them using makeup. Eye-lifting products and corrective makeup can make the appearance of even eyes. These solutions may take some practice, but they can make your eyes look more balanced.


Asymmetrical eyes are ubiquitous, with one eye sitting higher or lower than the other. One may open more comprehensively than the other or be farther back in the eye socket. While having too perfect a face can be uncomfortable, some people prefer some degree of facial asymmetry. However, some people may have eye problems, which makes asymmetry worse.
