Eyelid Services at Illinois Eye Center

At Illinois Eye Center, we recognize that eyelid issues encompass more than just cosmetic concerns; they can significantly impact your vision and overall eye health. Whether it’s excess skin hanging over your eyelashes, causing visual impairment, or other functional disturbances affecting your eyelid, our skilled doctors and surgeons are equipped to assess these challenges. Common eyelid problems include droopy eyelids (ptosis), which can obscure your field of vision and make daily activities difficult. Others may suffer from eyelid retraction, where the eyelid is pulled back too far, exposing the eye to irritation and leading to dryness and discomfort. Blepharitis, an inflammation of the eyelids, can cause persistent redness, itching, and swelling, along with a crusty buildup at the base of the eyelashes. In more severe cases, individuals may experience entropion or ectropion – conditions where the eyelids turn inward or outward, respectively, often causing severe irritation and increasing the risk of infection. Our team at Illinois Eye Center is dedicated to providing comprehensive evaluations and advanced treatments for these and other eyelid disorders, ensuring you receive the care needed to protect and enhance your eye health and vision.

Comprehensive Eyelid Treatment Options

Our expert team provides personalized surgical and non-surgical solutions to precisely assess your unique eyelid concerns. Our surgical treatments are meticulously designed to remove excess skin and correct any defects that could be impairing your vision and eye function. For those seeking less invasive options, we also offer a range of non-surgical approaches to improve eyelid appearance and health without the need for surgery.
