Why Are My Eyes Uneven, and Do I Need to Do Something About It?
The first thing you need to know is why are your eyes uneven. There are many reasons that could cause it. You might have had cataracts or glaucoma which caused the eyeball to become misshapen due to pressure from the lens. Your eyes may have been damaged during childhood when you were ill. Or maybe you just got older and the pressure from your head was greater than before.
You might not even know what causes it, but if you do, then there is no point in wasting time trying to figure out why your eyes are different. Most likely, you will never know the reason behind it. However, if you want to take action against this condition, then here are some things that you can try:
1) Get checked out by a doctor.
If the problem is not too severe and there is no underlying disease or health issue, then your best bet would be to see a specialist. They can determine whether something else needs to be done about it or not. Your doctor will probably perform a physical examination to see what is going on with your eyesight and the shape of your eyes. Hopefully, they can prescribe you some eye drops or an eye drop regimen to strengthen and moisturize your eyes or get rid of any redness or irritation.
2) Get your eyes checked.
Uneven eyes can sometimes be a sign of another health concern, so it would be in your best interest to get them checked. You want to make sure that you are seeing clearly and that everything else is functioning properly.
3) Consider getting surgery.
For some people, uneven eyes can be a permanent condition. If this is the case for you, then you may need to consider getting a surgery done in order to fix them. This procedure should only be done under the advisement of a professional as it can be very risky and should only be reserved as a last resort. It can also be very expensive depending on the treatment that you choose to get.
4) Use eye drops.
As a temporary fix, you can use some over-the-counter eye drops to try to even out the shape of your eyes. This should help with any dryness or redness that you are experiencing due to the condition. It should also help if you feel any pain, although this shouldn’t be a common occurrence. Eye drops can only do so much though; they will not correct the uneven shape of your eyes. If this condition is caused by a problem with your body rather than anything else, then eye drops are not going to help at all and you will need to see a doctor.
As you can see, uneven eyes can be caused by a number of different things, some of which you can do something about and some of which you cannot. In any case, it is a good idea to get it looked at by a professional so you can figure out what is causing the problem and what you can do about it. Whatever the cause, uneven eyes are not usually anything to worry about, although you will want to take steps to correct them if possible.
