At Palmetto Eye & Laser Center our team is ready to tackle any eyelid condition challenge you might have including:
Malposition is defined as an abnormal position. If you have an eyelid malposition, your eyelid has moved into an awkward position. It can turn inward or outward leading to eye discomfort, irritation, infection, excessive tearing, dry eye, light sensitivity and more.
Doctors can assess the cause of your eyelid disorder and recommend the best course of action. Surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. A small part of the eyelid may be removed to tighten and reposition the eyelid. If the cause is from scar tissue, a skin graft may be necessary to allow the eyelid to rest properly on the eye. The small stitches used to close the incisions will dissolve within two weeks.
Expect mild bruising and swelling on the eye for approximately two weeks after surgery. Following your doctor’s post-op instructions will help minimize discomfort. Medications, antibiotic ointments and cold compresses will most likely be prescribed to help your eyes heal.
If you are suffering from an abnormal eyelid position, contact our doctors to schedule your appointment and find out what types of relief are available for your eyes.
There are several types of growths that can appear on the upper or lower eyelids. Besides being unattractive, they can also interfere with vision. Not all eyelid growths are serious, but they should be checked by an ophthalmologist to ensure they are not cancerous.
At Palmetto Eye & Laser Center we can treat eyelid growths as well as remove eyelid lesions for biopsy.

Our eyelid surgeons have a strong track record of successful procedures and can share their experience and results with you.
It is common for the eye areas to have mild bruising and swelling for a week or two after surgery. Your eyes might also be sensitive to light and be prone to tearing. These are typically temporary side effects that can be minimized by following your doctor’s instructions for applying lubricating ointments, cold compresses, medications, etc.
