Factors That Determine The Expression Of The Eyes(2)
8.Diagonal coverage of the pupil.(strong epicanthal tension)
If the epicanthal tension is strong, it shows a diagonal pattern of the upper eyelid on the epicanthal region, covering the pupil at the same time. Magic epicanthoplasty can correct this unfavorable diagonal line by resolving epicanthus.
9.The shape and size of eyes
It is generally known that the distance between two eyes should be the same as the horizontal distance of one eye, i.e. the distance between the medial to the lateral canthus. However, majority of Asian women have a wider interepicanthal distance because of the epicanthus. The ideal shapes of oriental eyes in numerical values are 1.2cm in height , 3.5cm from inside(medial canthus) to outside(lateral canthus), and 3.5cm between the two eyes(intercanthal distance). The angle of the medial to lateral canthus should be 10 degrees in upward inclination to be considered an ideal eye.
10.Mongolian inclination (upward slant to the tail of the eyes)
Compared with Caucasians, Asians have a laterally slanted shape of the eyes, which is called "Mongolian inclination". This is made by the structures called medial and lateral canthal tendons. An angle made by this line to a horizontal line of face is called an inclination angle. This angle is about 5-8 degrees in Caucasians, while Asians’ form an angle of approximately 10 degrees. The eyes will not look as good if the exceeds 15 degrees. In cases of severe Mongolian inclination, it makes a sharp impression and it can cause negative effects.

11.Eyelids that hang down laterally
Asians usually have sharp looking eyes compared to Caucasians because of the tail of the eyes’ inclination and epicanthus. As you get older, your eyes can change into a softer and more comfortable appearance because aging causes the upper eyelid to hang down.
