There are many conditions involving the eyelids that may require surgery over the course of one's life. When the need arises for eye lid surgery, it is important to choose a eye surgeon specially trained in occuloplastic surgery. Some types of eye lid surgery include:
- Blepharoplasty - performed when excess skin weighs down the eyelids impairing vision
- Entropion repair - performed when the eyelids turn in which can cause damage to the surface of the eye
- Ectropion repair - performed when the eyelids turn out which can cause a loss of tear film and cause damage to the surface of the eye
- Ptosis repair - performed when the muscle that holds the eyelid up loses attachment
- Skin cancer removal
