- Are you having any problems with your eyes?
- Do they feel tired all the time, or do you feel your vision is blurry?
- Do your eyelids look bigger than other people?
- Do any of your eyelids look too low on your eye & make your eyes look droopy or sleepy?
- Are you looking more tired or maybe older than you actually are?
In this case, you might have an Eyelid disease you haven’t thought of. It’s highly important that you get your eyelids examined by an Eyelid specialist, as although it may not seem important now, it can cause a big problem in the future.
What are the eyelid diseases?
The eyelid diseases are the problems that may appear with the eyelid, at birth or during your life, because of accidents, trauma, certain problems you might have had with any products or they are sometimes symptoms of other, more serious diseases such as tumors, diabetes, or others. Some of these diseases are life-threatening and some of them put your vision at risk, and they can be quite uncomfortable. Generally, they make your eyes feel tired, and they can make you have blurred, watery vision or you may feel a burning sensation in your eyelid, or have a craving of scratching the eyelid. At times, the eyelids may look redder than usual or bigger than usual, with a lot of fat, skin or perhaps tissue you don’t need. Both your upper and lower eyelid can be affected by these diseases. The most uncomfortable effect they have on you is that they make you look older or more tired than you actually are. All this can, of course, impact your confidence adversely. Eyelid malpositions like ectropion (turning of the eyelid outwards) and entropion (turning of the eyelid inwards) can cause irritation and watering of the eyes.
Which are the eyelid disease surgeries and how do they work?
The Upper Eyelid Ptosis (blepharoptosis) is the disease because of which your upper eyelid is positioned lower than usual. The muscles of the eyelid may get affected; they might not be strong enough to raise your eyelid properly. The Upper Eyelid Ptosis surgery basically fixes that problem, giving you back the clear and fresh vision you might not have experienced since having the disease. It is known, however, that some people are born with it, so you might not even notice a change in your vision, but it still can be affected. Ptosis can be caused by other causes such as trauma or accidents too. Ptosis can also impact the lower eyelid – These can be treated through a lower eyelid ptosis surgery and a droopy eyelid ptosis surgery. These are both very similar to the upper eyelid ptosis surgery.

The Blepharoplasty is the surgery through which extra fat, skin or tissue is removed or replaced around your eye. It is called the Eyelid lift surgery as well, however, it does not literally lift your eyelid, it strengthens the muscles and the tendons around the eyelid, and removes unwanted fat and skin from there. The surgery is usually done because of vision problems, but also because it causes cosmetic issues in people. As it lifts and brightens a person’s face, the surgery is very commonly used all around the world. Entropion & ectropion can be treated by stabilizing and tightening the eyelid tissues and therefore bringing the eyelids to their earlier, neutral position.
Recovery after Eyelid Surgery
The usual amount of time needed to recover after an eyelid disease surgery is about two weeks. During this time, all the bruising or swelling that might have appeared during the surgery should be gone. There are no specific requirements during the recovery time.
FAQs (Frequently Ask Question)
How serious can the eyelid diseases be?
Although they are not taken into account too much, eyelid diseases can seriously affect your day-by-day life. Also, they can be symptoms of bigger, life-threatening diseases, so it’s better to get them checked early, before they may create other problems.
What is the Entropion?
The Entropion is the eyelid malposition. It is one of the most uncomfortable diseases of the eyelid, its general symptoms include redness and general pain around the eye, excessive tearing, blurry vision, decreased vision, or sensitivity to light. The eyelashes constantly rub against the cornea, which may affect it and even damage it. The Entropion can easily be corrected with the help of the surgeries.
Do the eyelid surgeries present any risk?
As any surgery, the eyelid disease surgeries also present certain risks, but every risk should be discussed with the doctor at the Clinic. Generally they do not affect either vision or life adversely, so they are safe.
Are there other ways to treat the eyelid diseases, except for surgeries?
There are other ways to treat them, such as glasses or contact lenses, but they are not as effective as the actual surgeries.
