Healthy upper and lower eyelids rest just around the border of the iris. Eyelid retraction refers to when the eyelid is abnormally raised or lowered, exposing the white of the eye, or sclera.
What Are the Benefits?
Eyelid retraction repair is a surgical solution to an unnatural eye appearance resulting from a rounded shape where the sclera is excessively showing. It also can resolve potential eye health issues generated by this condition. When left untreated, a retracted eyelid can cause:
- Inability to close the eye
- Dry eyes
- Blurred vision
- Excessive tearing
Repairing this condition can be an essential step in increasing quality of life by restoring the eyelid to its natural position.
