Thyroid Problems can Cause Uneven Eyes – Diagnosis and Eye Surgery Important Before Cosmetic Surgery


My eyes have started to become uneven. As
a woman, it really affects my self-confidence. I don’t know if it’s because of a poor botox
or it is because of the M.S. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to correct it. I read
the other article about the same issue; I thought my picture would explain more. Thank you for your question! You stated in your question that your eyes
are becoming more uneven and you submitted a single photo. You mentioned that you have
MS and of course, you’re looking for some kind of guidance. Well, when I look at your photo, it appears
to me is that your right eye appears to be more prominent and that it is becoming a little
wider compared to the left eye. Now, when I see a photo like this, my concern is whether
or not you have something called thyroid-related immune orbitopathy otherwise referred to as
Grave’s disease. I’m a board certified cosmetic surgeon,
background training in ophthalmology or eye surgery plus oculoplastic surgery of the eyelid,
orbits and lacrimal system and thyroid eye disease is something that we treat a lot.
What this has to do is with an antibody, the fact that you have MS which falls in the autoimmune
category, there is some possibility that you may be manifesting another immune related
issue. So I think that before you consider any kind
of cosmetic procedures that you see first your medical doctor as well as an ophthalmologist
and even an endocrinologist to determine what is going on in your thyroid in any addition
to any ophthalmic, things that are based on your eyes and the physiology. You may need
some imaging studies. But I would say you cannot pursue any cosmetic procedure given
that there is this shift and change in your appearance. Again, the thing I can’t say
is what degree of this change because you submitted a single photo. If you submitted
a photo of you 5 years ago, a year ago and this photo and there was a clear change and
it makes more sense. But the fact that your eyes, there’s a real change in the eyes
that’s not typical, age-related changes that we deal with so commonly, it’s important
to get the medical work-up first. We’ve treated a lot of thyroid eye disease
and we’ve been able to help people in their inflammatory stage and then do definitive
surgery to help with issues related to eyelid retraction where the eyes are too open or
even do surgery behind the eye to get the eyeball to push inward. But again, this is
getting ahead of ourselves. It’s more important that you get yourself properly diagnosed and
get proper medical management before you do something surgically. When it comes to thyroid
eye disease, we typically wait 6 months to a year after stability of the eye changes
before we do any kind of surgery. So again, meet with your doctor. Meet with
an ophthalmologist, endocrinologist. Get some medical opinions before you pursue any cosmetic
improvement. So I hope that was helpful, I wish you the
best of luck and thank your question!
