Eyelid Surgery

Sydney Oculoplastic Surgeon and Ophthalmologist

Dr Eade’s goal for surgery is to create a more refreshed and natural appearance without compromising the function of the eyelids. Surgery is tailored to each individual patient.

Eyelid tumours, lumps, chalazion

Although most eyelid lumps are benign, accurate diagnosis and early recognition of sinister lesions leads to improved patient outcomes.
Most eyelid lesions are benign, ranging from cysts, age-related warts (seborrheic keratosis), chalazion (blocked oil glands) or moles (naevi).
Even lesions that are benign can cause eye irritation and obscure vision.
Features that should prompt further assessment include gradual enlargement, lack of resolution, ulceration (breakdown of the surface), irregular borders, loss of lashes or dilated blood vessels.

Eyelid lift or reduction

Eyelid reduction or blepharoplasty removes excessive or redundant skin and repositions pockets of fat within the eyelids.
Blepharoplasty can be used to

  1. Restore peripheral vision loss, quality of the vision and reduce symptoms of eyelid fatigue
  2. Improve the appearance of eyelid changes associated with ageing

Droopy eyelid (ptosis)

Ptosis refers to drooping of the upper eyelid.
Common symptoms include heaviness or tiredness of the eyelids, reduced vision, constricted field of vision and altered cosmetic appearance.
Ptosis can affect one or both eyelids and can be asymmetrical.

Eyelid malposition (ectropion, entropion)

An ectropion is a drooping eyelid that rolls away from the eye. It can cause an unsightly red appearance. Symptoms include eye irritation, dryness or watering of the eye.

Entropion is when the eyelid rolls inward and causes the eyelashes to rub on the surface of the eye. This causes eye irritation, discomfort, watering or redness of the eye.

Eyelid reconstruction after facial nerve palsy

Facial palsy refers to weakness of the facial muscles, mainly from temporary or permanent damage to the facial nerve.
The muscles in the face do not receive the necessary signals in order to function properly.

Eyelid inflammation

Eyelid swelling

Other causes of eyelid swelling include:

  • Conjunctivitis
  • Allergy
  • Infection of the eyelids or orbit (socket)
  • Orbital inflammation including thyroid eye disease
  • Rosacea

Botox injections (blepharospasm hemifacial spasm facial palsy)

What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin is a protein produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum.
Botulinum toxin works by paralysing the muscle it is injected into.
It is widely used to treat conditions such as blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm or facial palsy.
