Our doctors treats many common eyelid problems, and provides surgical solutions for common conditions such as ectropion and entropion, as well as upper lid blepharoplasty for droopy eyelids from dermatochalasis (excess skin).
Over time, eyelid tissue can weaken and lead to a number of problems. Ectropion occurs when the lower eyelid turns out, leading to redness, irritation, and excess tearing. Entropion occurs when the lower eyelid turns in toward the eye; when this happens, the eyelashes rub the surface of the eye, resulting in eye pain, blurred vision, tearing, and possible infection. Dermatochalasis is excess skin of the upper eyelids, and develops over time as the underlying skin tissue becomes stretched; this can lead to droopy eyelids and blockage of vision. All of the above lid conditions are surgically correctable. Schedule an appointment at Sierra Nevada Eye Center to evaluate your eyelid condition and discuss your treatment options
