EYE ASYMMETRY

WHAT ARE ASYMMETRICAL EYES AND HOW DO I FIX THEM?

No one?s face is perfectly symmetrical. A wide range of factors can cause eyes to differ in shape, level, or apparent size. We are all born with a certain amount of facial asymmetry and in most mild cases, symmetry is close enough not to be noticed. Sometimes the asymmetry is quite pronounced and looks oddly out of place attracting unwanted attention.

Typically, the asymmetry is simply due to genetic factors combined with aging. This can be exacerbated by dietary issues, sun exposure, and just the wear and tear of life. Dr. Stout approaches each patient?s procedure as a unique work of art, making adjustments in the design of the procedure plan to reduce the amount of asymmetry even if it?s mild and not readily noticeable.

I AM INTERESTED. HOW SHOULD I PROCEED?

Dr. Stout?s goal during the consultation is to provide the patient with information and teach them as much as possible. He begins by listening and will ask the patient what they would like to discuss and what their goals are. The patient?s input is very important. This allows Dr. Stout to work together with the patient through the decision-making process and establish a plan based upon their goals. He believes that knowledge is empowering as it enables his patients to make decisions with confidence and makes them a better partner in the entire process.

Dr. Stout is happy to have the patient bring a family member or friend to the consultation to ask questions and listen. He encourages patients to bring up any concerns that they may have. His consultations are designed to understand each patient?s situation, teach them and give them honest advice so they leave with useful knowledge with which to consider their options.

If you are considering this procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stout.
