...In summary, it is evident that the location of the orbital septum fusion with the levator aponeurosis plays a major role in forming the upper eyelid crease. However, there are more considerations in the formation of the upper eyelid crease. They are the amount of soft tissue (subcutaneous fat, suborbicularis fat, pretarsal fat, and preaponeurotic fat) and the characteristics of the skin and orbicularis oculi muscle of the upper eyelid, especially in the lid crease area. Structural differences relating to increased fat in the Asian upper eyelid include the presence of a pretarsal fat pad and a moderate fat increase in the double Asian eyelid. Any facial plastic surgeon requested by Asians to perform eyelid surgery should consider their personal and cultural characteristics. An understanding of the profound anatomical differences is required to achieve the results desired by the patient.
Uh no, they have smaller eyes. Just look at those two photos. You can't deny a fact, abc3643.
Um yes... Their eyelids are fatter thus covering up the eyes a bit.Learn to read.Learn science.When you have a paper published in a JAMA journal, let me know. Then I will respect your "fact"s."You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts."- Daniel Patrick Moynihan

I'm asking a question and looking an answer. You asking me a question, doesn't do anything.
Duuuuuh. The answer to both questions is the same -- it's a genetic variation. And of course Asians don't have smaller eyes. Their eyelids are different.
@slatybI can answer that if you really wanted to know.
@abc3643 You did, and very nicely.
I was talking about why northern Europeans are so pale.
@abc3643 I just read that story in "A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived".
