QUESTION: Hello sir,

I am a 23 year old man from north India. I am a fashion model.

My vision is normal, I dont wear lenses or specs.

But I have observed that my left eye is becoming thinner since last few months. Sometimes it appears perfectly normal and sometimes it looks narrow or 25% closed.

I think it is like this since years, but became more prominent over last few months.

I have attached the 2 photos. LEft eye looks normal in first photo but affected in 2nd.

Please kindly elaborate regarding this condition, causes, treatment and prognosis.

Thanks in Advance,
Rakesh.

ANSWER: Dear RAKESH

Thank you for asking query

FROM your pictures it looks that your eye is slightly swoollen and red and 2 nd picture so either you have small eye number or you have allergy causing the eye to swell and become smaller ,please get a proper full check up done NOT from optician but EYE SPECIALIST who will put eye drops and check for actual cause of your problem

QUESTION: Sir,

Thanks but is it eyelid drooling or Ptosis of eyes ? I am scared. Please elaborate on that also. Thanks.

Answer
Dear RAKESH

Thank you for asking query

IF it was ptosis then it will be continuosly lid down but since as you say it is NOT always only at some times that means some other problem is causing problem, so do proper check up
