"As an Oculoplastic Surgeon, my goal is to provide my patients with the most advanced."-Dr. Rowland

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid lift)

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve vision and appearance affected by ptosis (droopy eyelids). If your upper eyelids droop, it can block much of your vision. Blepharoplasty is indicated as a medical versus aesthetic procedure by determining whether the droopiness of the eyelids impacts your vision or not. To do this, measurements, photos, and visual fields will be done to demonstrate that surgery would improve your vision. Most patients are very happy after blepharoplasty with their improved vision and appearance.

Brow Lift

As we age, the eyebrows can descend below their more youthful position. In some cases, the lowered eyebrows can impair your vision, or make it difficult to open the eyes. Surgical brow lifts can be used to elevate the brow, reduce excess upper eyelid skin, and decrease the appearance of forehead wrinkles. There are several techniques for surgical brow lifts. Dr. Rowland will discuss with you which is best suited for you.

Myogenic Ptosis Repair

Myogenic ptosis is drooping of the eyelid due a weakened muscle. The drooping may be constant or intermittent, or occur with use. The muscles that elevate the eyelid can become weakened for a number of reasons, the most common being aging, prior eye surgery and chronic eye rubbing.

If your upper eyelids droop, it can block your vision. Surgery is indicated as a medical versus aesthetic procedure by determining whether the droopiness of the eyelids impacts your vision or not.

 

Ectropion Repair

Ectropion is an eyelid malposition in which the lower eyelid turns outward and does not touch the eye. Many symptoms of ectropion are a result of chronic irritation of the eye and eyelid. Such symptoms include excessive tearing, crusting of the eyelid and mucus discharge, infection, corneal irritation, sagging skin around the eye, impaired vision, redness and pain of the eye, and sensitivity to light and wind.

Artificial tears and lubricating ointments can be used to moisten the cornea to prevent dryness of the cornea. When ectropion is caused by stretching of the eyelid’s supporting structures, surgery is the best treatment to repair the involved muscle and tendons of the eyelid.

 

Entropion

Entropion is an eyelid malposition in which the eyelid and eyelashes turn inward towards the eye causing the eyelid and lashes to rub against the eye. Many symptoms of entropion are a result of chronic irritation of the eye and eyelid. In severe cases, corneal infection and scarring may also occur.
