The normal eyelids open and close protecting the eye from dryness and injury; abnormal eyelids can cause blurriness, pain, tearing, inflammation, scarring and even blindness. Eye surgeons at ACES provide eyelid surgery to adults and children including repair of PTOSIS (droopy lids), ECTROPION (everted lid), ENTROPION (inverted lid), TRICHIASIS (lashes rubbing the eye) and DERMATOCHALASIS.
Changes in the shape and comfort of the eye lid may be a simple, self limited process like a skintag, or it may represent a tumor. Inflmmation of one or more of the 50 oil glands in each lid may cause hordeolum (stye) or chalazion. These may be prevented by eating quality omega-3 oils from Flax Seed or Fish. May of these will be cured by lid hygiene and application of warm packs to the lids several times per day- however persistent chalazia may require surgical incision and drainage. Painful or growing lumps behind the lids may require removal by orbitotomy.
"Dr. Winkle and staff provide the most professional, friendly, and best customer service. Our 5 yr old daughter had strabismus surgery with Dr. Winkle 2 weeks ago, and I couldn’t be any more happier with the results and how quickly she’s recovered. Dr. Winkle and his team provided very detailed and important information during surgery, pre-op, and post-op. They take their time to explain and answer any questions one has. Their level of professionalism and care for our child was beyond anything. We are extremely grateful and thankful for what they did to better our little one’s vision."
