Eyelid Laxity (Loose eyelids)

Over time, the effects of age and gravity cause the muscles and fat around the eyelids to lose their volume and elasticity. As a result, the eyelids can become loose and move away from their normal position around the eye. The tissue overlying the cheekbones also becomes flatter and sags with time, resulting in a hollow appearance of the lower eyelids, also known as eyelid laxity.

What is Ectropion?

Ectropion is a condition of the eyelid that occurs when the lower eyelid becomes loose and turns outwards away from the eye. This exposes the inner surface of the eyelid and can cause dryness, redness, watering, irritation and pain.

What is Entropion?

Entropion is a condition of the upper and lower eyelids where the edge of the eyelid turns inwards towards the eye. This results in the eyelashes touching the surface of the eye which can result in infection, pain, irritation and watering.

What’s the treatment for eyelid laxity?

Surgery can restore the eyelid back to the correct position and protect the eye being damaged.

Refer to our eyelid laxity procedure page for more information on the surgery, prices, and what to expect before, during and after surgery.
