    Eye lid excessively open wide
    An_227237 posted:
    I recently got botox, and am experiencing a problem in my left eye, quite the opposite of 'dropping eye'. My eyelid is open wide, above the iris, and a small amount of white is showing. No pain, full movement, other than a BLIND stare. I cannot find anything written anywhere about this condition . Is it something I need to worry about, or will it 'go away'. Like drooping eye?

    Also, I forgot to mention, I do having drooping eye in my right eye, but I understand that will go away in a few weeks. I can squint the left eye, and when I do the eye looks normal, but it's hard to do. I did not get botox over the eye, just for the crows feet, under the eye near the nose (rabbit nose wrinkles) and between the brows. I went back to the Dr. Who performed the procedure, but he said he couldn't see what I was talking about. But in pictures it's very relevant .
