Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove the excess skin. The skin on the eyelids is the thinnest of the body and tends to stretch over time. In the upper eyelid, this skin can hang over the lid and limit vision. The same process in the lower eyelid causes “bags” to form.
Ectropion is a turning out of the eyelid. This most commonly involves the lower lid and is usually due to stretching with age. It often results in tearing, redness, and irritation. Surgery can restore the normal position of the lid.
Entropion is a turning in of the eyelid and is also commonly a result of aging. The eyelashes can rub against the eye causing irritation, redness, and tearing. With surgery, the eyelid can be returned to its proper position.
These procedures are performed in our office surgical suite by our ophthalmologists
