Eyelid Abnormalities

Eyelids can develop various abnormalities as we age. The height of the upper lid can drop (ptosis) or move up (retraction). The lower lids can turn in (entropion) or turn out (ectropion). The oculoplastic surgeon has a surgical answer to these problems. The surgeries are of an out-patient nature performed under local anesthetic, usually within one hour.
