How To Easily Fix Asymmetrical Eyes Without Surgery

When you look at someone’s face what do you naturally focus on? Their eyes. That’s why asymmetrical eyes have such a big effect on someone’s appearance.

The good news is you can fix uneven-looking eyes. If you’re concerned about the risks or cost of surgery, then there’s even more good news.

You can even fix asymmetrical uneven looking eyes without surgery.

This post will show you how. There are two ways to easily and dramatically improve the appearance of asymmetrical or droopy eyelids without surgery. You’ll also get some more info on surgical solutions, so you can be in the know about the risks involved.

But before getting into how to fix asymmetrical eyes, it’s helpful to know what causes eyes to look uneven in the first place.

Why Do My Eyes Look Uneven?: Common Causes of Asymmetrical Eyes

It’s true that facial asymmetry is perfectly normal, but some people develop more noticeable differences between their eyes than the average person. There are a variety of causes for these differences. Some are natural, and others are due to medical conditions. Aging is one of the most common causes of uneven eyes.

Aging Can Cause Asymmetrical Uneven Eyes

As people age, it becomes more likely that they’ll develop uneven eyes. According to a study of facial symmetry published in The National Library of Medicine, as people, age facial asymmetry tends to increase.

The reasons for this could be due to the soft tissues in the face changing shape over time. Another contributing factor may be the asymmetrical growth of the skeleton as old bone tissue is naturally replaced by new bone tissue. The changing elasticity of the skin as you age may also contribute to an uneven appearance.

Eyelids also tend to droop when you get older. The muscle supporting eyelids can weaken over time. This causes them to sag and can make eyes look uneven.

Genetics Can Cause Asymmetrical Eyes

Most people are born without perfect facial symmetry. Genetics is a natural cause for uneven eyes. Genetically uneven eyebrows or the shape of someone’s nose may also contribute to the appearance of asymmetrical eyes.

Genetically uneven eyes are not a cause for concern. They are common and generally don’t interfere with anyone’s health. Most genetically uneven eyes aren’t very noticeable. Especially compared to uneven eyes caused by more serious medical conditions.

Medical Conditions Can Cause Asymmetrical Eyes

A variety of medical conditions from physical trauma to disease can cause eyes to become asymmetrical.

Some common medical causes include:

Enophthalmos

This condition causes the eye to appear sunken. Eyelids may also look retracted. It’s not unusual for people with enophthalmos to have noticeably uneven eyes.

Ptosis

People affected by ptosis have eyelids that look droopy. It can affect one or both eyelids. It’s more common in older people, and generally isn’t a cause for concern. But ptosis can be dangerous if the eyelid droops enough to block someone’s vision.

Proptosis

Proptosis causes the eye to protrude forward. It gives the appearance of eyes that are bulging. This condition may also come with more serious symptoms of pain, and pulsing of the affected eye.

Bell’s Palsy

This condition only affects one side of the face. It causes the affected side to become paralyzed. This affects the eye causing it to droop along with the mouth.

How to Fix Asymmetrical Eyes Without Surgery

There are a few viable solutions to fixing asymmetrical eyes without surgery. These methods, while temporary, are effective. With them, you can give your eyes the appearance of being even and symmetrical.

These methods can be reapplied as often as needed. You can use them on a daily basis, or as needed for special occasions.

The first, and most effective, way to make your eyes look even without surgery is Eyelid Tape.

Eyelid Tape

Think of eyelid tape like one-a-day contact lenses. They’re invisible and once you put them on you can wear them all day. After putting them on you’ll instantly see the difference.

Eyelid tape works by lifting skin sagging over your eyelid. You can use them to lift one or both of your eyes to give them a more symmetrical and youthful appearance.

It’s much more immediately cost-effective and safe than surgery. It also gives you all the same benefits. If the eyelid tape is well made it should also be comfortable to wear too.

The Lids By Design Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips from Contours RX is an eyelid tape that only uses high-quality materials. They’re lab-tested and latex-free to make sure they’re safe and as comfortable as possible.

They’re also available in multiple sizes. This gives you a lot of control over how much you lift each eyelid. It can be difficult to match the appearance of one eye to the other. So having control over how much to lift each eyelid helps.

After trying Lids By Design Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips for yourself it’s easy to see that they’re effective. We’ve even seen some people use their Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips to fool surgeons.

One of our customers Kristen told us this funny story about her experience. “After being turned down for surgery due to my hooded lids, I tried Lids By Design. Well, the joke was on the surgeon, because the next time I saw him he actually said, ‘Oh you had your lids done by someone else. Wow, they look great!’ Fooled him, and got to skip the ordeal of surgery.”

You can see eyelid tape by itself is enough to correct asymmetrical eyes and improve their appearance. But if you want to try another non-surgical method, makeup can also help.

Makeup

By applying makeup to certain areas of the eyelids you can create the illusion of symmetry.

This method is not as effective, because you’re not physically altering the eyes or eyelids in any way, but it can help make a difference in your appearance.

Eyeliner and eye shadow can be used to change the appearance of your eyes. By applying makeup unevenly on one eye you can change its appearance. This creates the illusion that the eyes are more even. Styling your eyelashes can also make one eye appear larger or more open.

Makeup used in a combination with eyelid tape can be a great way to drastically improve the appearance of your eyes and make them look even. Although eyelid tape is usually enough.

Of course, makeup is temporary. There are other more permanent solutions to fix eye asymmetry, but they come with a high cost and more risks.

Pros and Cons of The Surgical Procedure Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to make the eyes look even by fixing baggy, droopy, or uneven eyelids. It’s a voluntary cosmetic procedure done primarily to improve someone’s appearance. In some cases, it might also be done to improve someone’s vision.

The surgery itself involves cutting along the fold of one part of the eyelid. Then removing sagging skin, muscle, or fat from the eyelid area of the face. The cut is then closed. Then another cut is made on another part of the eyelid. Fat, excess skin or muscle can then be redistributed to this other part of the eyelid.

Surgery is always a serious consideration. There’s the cost, the risk, and the thought of permanently changing your appearance. It’s a lot to take in.

If you’re nervous about not knowing how you would look after surgery, you can use Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips. Using them will show you what you could look like after the procedure without getting it.

For other concerns you might have, the pros and cons listed below should help you make a more informed decision.

Pros of Blepharoplasty

Shorter Recovery Time Compared to Most Procedures

Compared to other cosmetic surgeries, the recovery time for Blepharoplasty isn’t very long. After the procedure, you can leave the facilities that day, and recover at home.

There are some temporary discomforts you may experience like bruising, swelling, light sensitivity, blurred vision, or watery eyes. You also won’t be able to wear contact lenses or do any strenuous work for about 2 weeks.

But during the recovery period, you won’t be completely incapacitated, or need to completely cover your eyes with bandages.

The Results Are Long Lasting

Once the surgical procedure is complete the results can be permanent. According to Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit medical organization for medical professionals, “For some people, results of surgery may last a lifetime. For others, droopy eyelids may recur.”

In either case, the results are long-lasting. But there are some risks that should still be considered.

Cons of Blepharoplasty

Some negative aspects and risks of blepharoplasty are common to surgeries in general, but some are specific to that procedure. Before considering surgery you should know the risks.

The Cost

Surgery is not cheap and blepharoplasty is no exception. According to a study performed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the cost of blepharoplasty in 2017 was about $3,026 on average.

This doesn’t include hospital fees, and the cost of any time or equipment needed for recovery. It’s also important to remember that many insurances don’t cover aesthetic procedures.

Blepharoplasty is a primarily cosmetic procedure, so you’ll likely be paying for it out of pocket.

Lengthy and Complicated Preparation For Surgery

As with any surgery you want to go through a strict vetting process to make sure the surgeon is capable and experienced. This could mean weeks or months of consultation visits and research, just to find someone you feel comfortable with.

Once you do choose a surgeon you’ll need to undergo many appointments and exams in preparation for the surgery.

You’ll have to undergo an initial consultation, a physical exam with extensive eye measurements, vision tests, tear tests, and finally, pictures will need to be taken of your eyes.

There are multiple steps to complete in the process that could take longer than expected. Additionally, you may need to do a follow-up surgery if complications occur.

Risks of Potentially Permanent Damage

Every surgery comes with risks of things like infection, reactions to anesthesia, and blood clots. But blepharoplasty comes with a few more specific risks that you should be aware of.

According to Mayo Clinic, the risks of blepharoplasty include:

Infection and bleeding
Dry, irritated eyes
Difficulty closing your eyes or other eyelid problems
Noticeable scarring
Injury to eye muscles
Skin discoloration
The need for a follow-up surgery
Temporarily blurred vision or, rarely, loss of eyesight
Some of these risks such as scarring and skin discoloration involve permanent changes to your appearance. Other more serious risks could even permanently impair your vision. Although these risks can be rare it’s important to be aware of them.

Conclusion

There are a lot of different ways to fix uneven eyes. Surgery isn’t the only option. Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips are an effective way to quickly and drastically fix asymmetrical eyes. Using makeup is an also option, and can even be used with Instant Eyelid Correcting Strips.

Comparison of Top Eyelid Tape Brands with Contours Rx

Our world is so full of option and choice, it can be difficult to know when you are getting the best of something. From hair care and body care to makeup, companies that may have similar products are not always created equal. In the last fews years, instant eyelid tape has become more and more popular. From Asian eyelid tapes to more medical-grade eyelid tapes, the options run along a spectrum of cost and quality; but are you always getting the most bang for your buck?We decided to try all of the top eyelid tape correction brands, including our own, to see what stood out the most.

Top Eyelid Brands

1. Asian Eyelid Tapes

Asian eyelid tapes have been around for a long time, and were made quite popular in China and Korea to give users with monolids a more Westernized eyelid. Because of their more playful use in the culture, these eyelid tapes are made with cheaper materials and glues, which cost very little to the customer. Therefore, these tapes are not latex-free, hypoallergenic, or medical-grade.

I applied this eyelid tape using my fingers, as instructed, and used the tool to press it into my eyelid. Because I already have a more Western eyelid shape, the results that were achieved were minimal. These tapes were more visible on the eyelid because they had little pores on the surface, which ultimately didn’t end up blending with my skin tone. This brand lasted 2 hours before they began to fall off.

2. MAGICSTRIPES

MAGICSTRIPES have become a very popular eyelid beauty tape in the US, and is easily available on Amazon and other beauty websites. MAGICSTRIPES does not claim to be hypoallergenic, latex-free, or medical-grade and comes in 3 sizes: small, medium, and large.

I removed the medium tapes using my fingers, as per the instructions, and placed it on my eyelid. Once again, I found that the tape was noticeable on the eyelid although it did provide a lift. I also noticed that by using my fingers, I had damaged the corners while removing the tapes, which made them more noticeable. MAGICSTRIPES lasted 4 hours before beginning to fall off.

Something interesting and unexpected we discovered is the incredible similarity between a version of the Asian tape we purchased and the MAGICSTRIPES product. The only difference we could detect was that MAGICSTRIPES provided 32 strips for $26.00 and the Asian-packaged equivalent provided 120 strips for $3.96.

3. LIDS BY DESIGN, from Contours Rx

LIDS BY DESIGN stands out as the only eyelid tape on the market to be latex-free, hypoallergenic, and made from medical-grade materials. Their patented eyelid tape designs are unique to this company, their tapes are made in Germany, and they offer 6 unique sizes: from 3mm-8mm. Each box contains 80 strips.

I placed a 5mm tape on my eyelid using the tweezers provided in the kit. The tape easily blended into the skin tone, noticeably better than the other brands, and evenly contoured my eyelid. These eyelid tapes lasted all day on my eyelids until they were removed.

4. Eye Magic

Eye Magic is the last brand we tested. This brand states they are hypoallergenic and medical-grade but are not latex-free. This product is different in that there is an emollient gel that you are instructed to place on the tape before using it because the tape is too sticky to be placed directly on the eye safely. The company does not state how many tapes are in each box, but it appears to be about 60. This product is available in 4 sizes: small, medium, large, and extra-large.

I used my finger to put the emollient gel on the tape and then placed the tape on my eyelid. The gel created a wet sensation on my eyelid that remained for quite some time. The eyelid tape went on fairly smoothly but did not stick for very long on account of the gel, so it began to fall off after 1 hour. I tried the tape without the gel and as the company states, the strong adhesive makes it difficult to remove and does irritate the skin.

Non- Surgical Eyelift – Alternative Treatments for Droopy Eyelids in 2020

What is the difference between Surgical and Non-Surgical Eye Lift?

An eye lift is a blanket term that can refer to several different procedures, that can either be surgical or non-surgical. The most common non-surgical procedures are eyelid lifts and brow lifts. As you can expect, an eyelid lift refers to the treatment of the entire eyelid region while non-surgical brow lifts focus only on the eyebrows.

It’s simple, a non-surgical eye lift is a procedure that enhances the appearance of your eyes giving you a ‘lifted’ look to your eyes without having to go under the knife. The other option is referred to as Blepharoplasty. This is a procedure where a surgeon will cut the excess skin off of the upper or lower eye area.

Precautions to be taken before surgery

It is important to remember that this is an invasive procedure that is risky and involves several medical injections and may not be right for you. Side effects like bleeding, soreness, numbness, and swelling and even dry eye syndrome from cutting to much off. Surgical eye lifts are not recommended for people who have unsuccessfully tried other wrinkle reduction treatments, pregnant and nursing women, elderly patients, or people under the age of 18. If you take certain medications like blood thinners, you could be at a higher risk and surgery may not be an option.

Looking to lift the eye area without surgery? Let’s look at the options…

The botulinum toxin injections (also known as Botox) can help lift your brow without surgery. Simply put, Botox injections block the signals in your brain that pulls the muscles in your eyebrows down. This will help smooth the skin around the forehead and could give your eyes an elevated arch. The Botox injection injections last between 3 and 4 months.

However, it is important to know that by relaxing the muscles in an attempt to lift the brow there is a risk that this can cause a heavier brow resulting in heavy hooded eyelids.

Non-Surgical Eye Lifts for Hooded Eyes & Saggy Eyelids?

For most people, saggy eyelids can be a problem that can make you look tired and aged.There are plenty of products on the market that claim to ‘tighten’ the skin around your eyelids and give you a sharper appearance. These products are expensive and promise results while waiting for months in hopes of seeing a difference.

Non-surgical eye lifts can also be used to address asymmetrical eyes, especially when one eyelid droops more than the other. The same non-surgical eye lift procedures can be used to make your eyes look more even and uniform. Botox procedures can also be used to treat the wrinkles in between your eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines.

A non-surgical eye lift is one of the most promising ways to enhance your appearance without dealing with the many complications of surgery. The non-surgical alternative for lifting the eye doesn’t take long and won’t leave any marks or scars like surgeries.

This non-invasive solution takes just seconds and gives you the desired results immediately. No down time and no waiting for results. This makes non-surgical eyelid and brow lifting a quick and cost-efficient alternative for anybody looking to enhance their looks and lift heavy hooded eyelid safely, easily, and instantly.

So, is there a product that can do all of this?

Yes, Contours Rx brings its revolutionary product ‘Lids by Design’ to help you in this endeavor. Contours Rx provides safe, simple, instant solutions to lift and redesign the shape of saggy eyelids for a new, brighter, more youthful appearance.

Eyelid tape helps give your eyes more definition by supporting the excess skin that has loosened on your eyelids. It’s a simple solution that works instantly and even though this is temporary, it’s non-invasive and a great alternative to surgery. Surgical procedures may work better for a longer result however this requires cutting the excess skin off and can be extremely expensive.
