Eyelid Scarring and Retraction

Eyelid or facial surgery or trauma can cause the eyelids to lose normal mobility and position. In some cases, this scarring may make it impossible to properly close the eye(s) so that drying, irritation, and infection can result. When the lower eyelid is affected, there is “too much white showing” and the eye often alternates between feeling gritty and then watering excessively. Outpatient surgical repair can usually restore more normal appearance and function.  Careful examination during your consultation with Dr. Fante will determine the exact details of the repair that will be required.
