Lower Eyelid Problems

Do you have droopy eyelids which impact your vision? Do your lower eyelids roll away from your eye causing dryness and irritation? Does your lower eyelid role in towards your eye causing eyelashes to rub on your eye? Did you know your insurance and medicare will cover these conditions? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then Dr. John McCann at the Center For Facial appearances can help.

The eyelids are crucial for the protection of the eyes and abnormalities of contour, strength, or position can dramatically affect ocular comfort and vision. For instance, ptosis is a condition where the upper eyelids droop due to abnormalities of the inner structures and dermatochalasis is a condition where the eyelids droop due to excess skin and fat in the upper eyelids. Both of these conditions can block the peripheral vision and make it more difficult to read or drive a car.

Entropion and trichiasis are conditions where the eyelashes rotate against the eyeball, and ectropion is a condition where the eyelid sags away from the eyeball. Entropion, ectropion, and trichiasis can cause a red, watery, irritated eye.
