My left eye is blind and excessively smaller than my right eye, which is functioning. I have no pupil in my left eye due to underdevelopment caused by a prenatal fall. Is there anyway to adjust the size of my left eyeball or add a new one so they are equal?

Answer:

It is possible for this to be achieved however the risks are far too great for a patient only seeking cosmetic changes. This would involve highly complex craniofacial surgery that could result in permanent blindness or even death.  This type of procedure is only reserved for those with extreme facial deformities or other serious medical conditions because the risk of complication is so severe. However, there are other options to make the distance between your eyes more symmetrical. Please schedule a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to determine the best treatment option.
