My eyes have started to become uneven. As a woman, it really affects my selfconfidence. I don’t know if it’s because of a poor botox or it is because of the M.S. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to correct it. I read the other article about the same issue I thought my picture would explain more. Thank you for your question! You stated in your question that your eyes are becoming more uneven and you submitted a single photo. You mentioned that you have MS and of course, you’re looking for some.
Kind of guidance. Well, when I look at your photo, it appears to me is that your right eye appears to be more prominent and that it is becoming a little wider compared to the left eye.
