The delicate eyelids have many moving parts, and changes due to age, trauma, infections, or prior surgery of any sort – cosmetic or reconstructive around the eyes and cheek – can affect their function. Common problems include inability to open or close the eyelids, inward or outward rotation of the eyelids, eyelashes rubbing the surface of the eye, or other abnormalities.
What are eyelid malpositions?
What are the common forms of eyelid malposition?
- Eyelid Retraction: The upper eyelid is unusually high, or the lower eyelid is unusually low.
- Ptosis: The upper eyelid is droopy or saggy.
- Entropion: The inward rotation of the eyelid makes the eyelashes brush against the cornea.
- Ectropion: The outward rotation of the lower eyelid.
