Oculoplasty

Oculoplasty

Most common oculoplasty disorders are :

  • Ptosis ie low or drooping upper lids
  • Entropion or Inward turning of lids
  • Ectropion or Outward turning of lids
  • Eye Bags ie puffy upper or lower lids

Correction of all these disorders requires surgery and our institute is fully equipped to perform all the above surgeries.

Ptosis ie low or drooping upper lids

Ptosis is a condition whereby the natural position of the upper eyelid is droopy or sagging and limits a person's field of vision. Ptosis caused by injury to the muscle, congenital defect, muscle disorders, nerve disorders, or aging can obstruct vision and/or create a tired or aged appearance. Correcting this problem involves surgery to repair the muscle and support the eyelid


Ectropion or Outward turning of lids

Ectropion is the medical term used to describe sagging and outward turning of the lower eyelid and eyelashes. The margin of the eyelid and the eyelashes revert (turn out) . This rubbing can lead to excessive tearing, crusting of the eyelid, mucous discharge and irritation of the eye.


Entropion or Inward turning of lids

Entropion is the medical term used to describe sagging and outward turning of the lower eyelid and eyelashes. The margin of the eyelid and the eyelashes invert (turn in) . This rubbing can lead to excessive tearing, crusting of the eyelid, mucous discharge and irritation of the eye.


Eye Bags ie puffy upper or lower lids

  • Eyelids (and your eyes) are, perhaps, what other people notice first.
  • Eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of the eyelids is often called 'eyelift' or 'blepharoplasty'.
  • As we age, your eyelids (both upper and lower) may become 'droopy' or 'baggy'. The eyelid skin stretches and muscle tone weakens
  • In addition, your eyebrows may also droop.
  • Your droopy upper eyelids and droopy brows may give you the appearance of being sleepy, tired and aging prematurely
  • In addition, this sagging, may lead to brow/eyelid strain
  • Excess skin can hang over the eyelid and interfere with vision
  • This surgery can be performed on both the UPPER and on the LOWER eyelids.
