Eyelid Surgery

Previous trauma or eyelid cancer may have resulted in damage to the eyelid or may have left scars that are affecting the way the eyelid works. In the case that the eyelid is no longer able to protect the eye properly, further reconstructive surgery may be necessary. There are a wide variety of surgeries that can be performed to reconstruct the eyelid depending on the condition. It is recommended that you contact our office to determine what treatment options are best for your particular situation.
