Eyelids are populated by numerous small glads, which when congested, inflammed or infected become troublesome.
We offer full consultation and can discuss various immediate and long term treatment options for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction including medical and surgical management of eye lid cysts.
Blepharitis is a common eyelid condition which results in discomfort, irritation dry or watery eyes. It contributes to development of eye lid cysts also known as Chalazion or Meibomian Cysts. We treat Blepharitis with wide range of treatment options from home based to bespoke in-house packages including manual meibomian gland expression and BlephEx R. Keeping blepharitis controlled will reduce the likelihood of developing eye lid cysts and long term changes which may affect external eye health and vision.
BlephEx TM is recommended for management of dry eyes, blepharitis and Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
This treatment can significantly improve symptoms of blepharitis, MGD and dry eye syndrome (DES).
Available as part of our treatment package.
Manual MEIBOMIAN gland expression Combined with BlephEx TM removes most of the unwanted and abnormal meibomian debris resulting in improved environment for the meibomian glands to function.
Watery eyes are common and can be due to a variety of factors, including uncontrolled blepharitis, reflex tearing or and a blocked tear ducts.
We specialise in full assessment and offer all modalities of treatment for watery eyes including surgery (punctoplasty and endonasal dacryocystorrhinostomy DCR) if required.
Microsurgical excision of cysts, skin tags, lumps of eye lid margin, upper and lower eye lids must be undertaken by an oculoplastic specialist.
All lesion are professionally assessed and biopsies performed routinely to confirm diagnosis and ensure further advice and treatment. Minimal scar technique under local anaesthesia or sedation.
Ptosis is a medical term for the low upper lid (droopy eyelid).
Ptosis can be due to various causes from congenital (present at birth) to acquired (contact lens wear, lid rubbing, age related, neurological or trauma).
Our practice offers all types of ptosis surgery in combination with blepharoplasty (in case of excess eye lid skin).
Depending on individual needs and underlying factors surgical plan is discussed which may involve scarless posterior or anterior approach with blepharoplasty.
Ectropion is a condition of the eye lid where the lid margin is turned away from the normal position and the eye. This leads to watery eye due to inability of drainage system to function correctly.
If the lid is turned inwards, the condition is termed entropion which can lead to similar symptoms.
Ectropion and entropion can also lead to recurrent eye infections, exposure keratopathy (corneal changes) and even can lead to serious eye infections if not treated promptly.
It is important to seek advice regarding options for treatment including surgery and botulinum toxin injections.
