Other Eyelid Surgeries
What is Ptosis ?
A Ptosis is when the upper eyelid is drooping over the eye. In some cases the eyelid may droop a little, or so much that it covers the pupil. It can be caused by a number of reasons and can limit or completely block your vision.
Surgery is done as an outpatient procedure and under local anesthetic. Recovery is usually 1-2 weeks.
Ectropion / Entropion Repair
Ectropion is a medical condition where your eyelid turns outward which can cause irritation, tearing and dryness. Entropion is a medical condition where your eyelid turns inward causing your eyelashes to rub against your cornea. This can cause irritation, pain and tearing. Both conditions can be fixed with a simple surgical procedure which is done in the office.
What is Xanthelasma ?
Some patients have cholesterol deposits in their eyelids which can manifest as yellowish plaques on/under the skin. These can be treated with a small surgical procedure done in the office. This is not covered by MSP and is considered a cosmetic procedure.
