Hello there

are you referring to the images you see as being larger or the eye itself looking larger when viewed from the front ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no, looking in the mirror, the eye with the membrane appears to be open wider

Hello again

if one eye appears bigger, more than likely it is due to a droopy lid on the other side. If indeed the affected eye is bulging, it is not due to the epiretinal membrane. The epiretinal membrane is inside the eye but does not make the eye larger. Regards *****
