Horner's syndrome, eyelid ptosis correction surgery
I have recently been diagnosed with Horner's syndrome, after five long years of moving from eye specialist to eye specialist, finally one recommended I see a neurologist and Im diagnosed.
My upper eyelid had dropped to a point where I couldnt see at all through the eye, I had also been using allergy eye drops for the past five years, which my eye was addicted to coz would use it so often coz it would be a temporary fix to my problem. I had surgery on my upper eyelid to correct the problem, I noticed after the surgery that my eyes still did not look the same, the eyelid still seemed swollen and my eye as a whole still seemed a lot smaller than my other eye. My surgeon explained that this is because my eyes are different. I dont think this is the case, as my condition is not genetic, I used to look "normal" before.
I would like to know is it possible to have upper eyelid surgery nd surgery on my lower eyelid as well to open my eye up as the lower eyelid has risen quite a bit, and I would also like to know that if this is done correctly, is it possible to obtain a "normal" appearance again? And what kind of surgeon should I be looking for, I used just a conventional plastic surgeon for my last surgery and would like someone who actually specializes in this type of surgery.
If anyone of the public have this condition or have any opinions,adice or experiences similar to mine, please let me know as theres not much information on the internet and not many blogs on it either.
