Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
What other information do you need?
Are you there?
Does this only occur when you smile or is one eye open more when your face is relaxed?
Looks like we are playing "chat tag" :)
Also, do you have any medical conditions or have you suffered any trauma to your head/face or had any serious infections around that area?
I'll be near my computer awaiting your reply.....sorry I missed 'ya
Thanks. . .mostly when I smile. . there is a slight difference when relaxed (only noticed when looking for it). . .
No recent trauma nor infections. On statins and blood pressure meds (but was on them for years prior) - haven't changed meds recently. Have three cardiac stents
There are a number of things that can cause this. One is swelling of the muscles behind your eyeball or overaction of a muscle that helps to open your eyelid. The most common cause of this issue is called Graves Disease. Other, less common things could be a tumor/mass in the orbit, aberrant nerve regeneration etc.
Meds: Aspr 81mg; Crestor 10 mg; Ramipril 10mg; Bupropion 300mg; Zetia 10mg; Amlodipine 5mg
Would you recommend seeing general physician? or ophthalmologist?
I suggest you have a complete eye exam by an ophthalmologist first, then maybe an internist. Your meds are not the cause of this.
Thank you. . .I'll make an appointment. Have a great day.
