Eyelid Surgery


The most common reasons for eyelid surgery include:

  • Upper eyelid drooping (ptosis): This drooping of the eyelid may block the upper field of vision.
  • Turned in eyelid (entropion): Entropion is when the eyelid is rolled in toward the eye causing the eyelid and lashes to rub against the eye, making the eye red, irritated, and often painful.
  • Turned out eyelid (ectropion) Ectropion is when the eyelid is turned outward from the eye, causing the eyelid surface to be exposed and prone to irritation.
  • Eyelid twitching (blepharospasm): uncontrolled blinking of the eyelids.
  • Eyelid cyst (Chalazion): an inflamed bump on the upper eyelid or lower eyelid due to a blocked meibomian gland.
