Eyelid Malposition

Eyelid Malposition is a common disorder where the positioning of the eyelids is abnormal. This can be caused by many different factors and can lead to potentially serious visual and ocular problems. The most common forms of Eyelid Malposition include:

  • Eyelid retraction: when the upper eyelid or lower lid is unusually high or low.
  • Ptosis: The upper eyelid droops.
  • Entropion: An inward turn of the eyelid. This can cause eyelashes to brush against the cornea.
  • Ectropion: An outward turn of the the lower eyelid.
