Eyelid problems, such as drooping, turned in or turned out eyelids, can cause interference with the eye resulting in vision trouble. In the case of impaired vision, Medicare or your insurance will often assist with the cost of eyelid surgery. Our oculoplastic surgeon can perform a comprehensive eye exam and discuss the best treatment options for you.
- Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Procedure) – The surgical procedure to correct drooping skin of the upper eyelids and bags and bulges of the lower eyelids that make you look tired even when you are not. In many cases insurance will help cover a portion of the evaluation and the procedure.
- Ectropion – Ectropion is the turning outward of the lower eyelid, or sagging of the lower eyelid.
- Entropion – Entropion is the turning inward of the eyelid causing the eyelashes to rub against the eye proving to be very irritating and eventually even painful.
- Eyelid Ptosis Repair Procedure – The surgical treatment to correct a Ptosis, which is drooping of the upper eyelid wherein the muscle that opens the eyelid (the levator aponeurosis) has slipped or is weak.
