Factors That Determine The Expression Of The Eyes(1)
1.Exposure of the pupil that makes bright looking eyes
Eyes are considered to look bright and natural if the upper part of the pupil/iris is slightly covered by the skin under the eyelid by about 1-2mm. Also, the pupil should be situated right in the middle of the left and right white parts of the eye (called a sclera.)
2.Veiling of the medial canthus and inner sclera of the eyes (pseudostrabismus)
When the inner corner of the eyes (epicanthal region) is covered with epicanthus, they look like a squint or crossed-eyed because they make both pupils look as if they are situated toward the inner corners. By magic epicanthoplasty, these problems can be corrected by exposing the corner of the eyes that were hidden by the epicanthus.
3.Exposure of the upper sclera of the eyes
Types like this such as a protruded eyeball may give a strong and scary appearance
4.Exaggerated veiling of the upper part of the pupil/iris by skin drooping (peseudoptosis)
These are cases where the upper pupils are covered by the eyelid skin drooping. It should be separated from true ptosis or mixed type by accurate evaluation. In cases of much skin drooping(true epiblepharon), there tend to be more than mild ptosis.
5.True covering of the upper part of the pupil/iris (blepharoptosis)
Eyelids should cover the iris parts of the eyes by 1-2mm, but in case of a true ptosis, the eyelid droops down and covers the iris/pupil with a significant amount. It makes a distinct sleepy appearance
Examples)Cases of ptosis correction
6.Exposure of the lower sclera of the eye (Scleral show)
When the lower sclera of the eye is exposed, it is thought to give a gloomy-looking impression. In this case, it can get worsen if a lateral canthoplasty is undertaken so it must be avoided. Sometimes, it appears when one has true ptosis.
7.Excessive covering of the lower part of iris by lower eyelid
Examples) Magic epicanthoplasty and lateral canthoplasty
