Blepharoplasty is to remove the excessive skin of the eyelid. If it is mild to moderate, it can be tightened without surgery. (See Aesthetic Services)
The eye brow is usually situated at the level of the bony prominence above the eye. Sometimes it sags, putitng pressure on the eyelid causing discomfort.

Ptosis (Droopy Eye Lid)
The eyelid is like the Roman blinds. The cord is the tendon that pulls up the eyelid. The folded over fabric is the eyelid fold seen above the eye. The eyelid droops because the tendon that pulls the eyelid upwards is stretched. In ptosis surgery, the stretched tendon is shortened and reattached to the eyelid.

Entropion (In-turned eye lid)
Entropion is when the lower eyelid turns inward. The lashes will rub the eye causing irritation and tearing. If left untreated, this can cause permanent scarring of the surface of the eye.

Ectropion (Out-turned eye lid)
Ectropion is when the eyelid turns outward. This leads to tearing and inability to close the eye completely. This will cause the eye to dry up and develop ulcer.

This is inflammation due to accumulated meibomian (oil) secretion in the eyelid. In its early stage, it can be treated with wet warm compresses and lid scrub. If it does not resolve, it needs to be drained surgically.
