Lower Eyelid Reconstruction

Lower Eyelid Reconstruction

The lower eyelids play an important role for eye protection and closure. To function properly, they need to maintain a fine balance between proper anatomic position and orientation during eye movement, blinking, and eyelid closure. As we age, the eyelids tend to loosen and can become unstable either turning inward or outward. Additionally, if they become too lax, they may not move properly during blinking and play an important role with tear drainage away from the eyes. They also can retract or pull downward from their normal position at the bottom of the cornea (clear “cap” of the eye).
