In-turning of the eyelid margin can cause a chronic irritation and eye mattering. Untreated, this condition can lead to vision loss. Our surgical team corrects this problem by internally re-inserting lower eyelid retractors, excising a small Orbicularis muscle strip and tightening the eyelid. Dr Dresner developed a minimal scar approach through the inside of the eyelid, which is used throughout the world.
Out-turning of the eyelid margin may cause redness, tearing, or mattering. Repair involves tightening the lower eyelid with a small incision hidden in the small lines at the outside corner of the eyelids.
Lower Eyelid Retraction
The rounding of the lower eyelid contour, or eyelid retraction, can be caused by previous cosmetic eyelid surgery, skin cancer surgery or with simple aging. We offer a variety of methods designed to repair this complex problem.
Tearing problems are fully evaluated and tested. We strive at really identifying the possible causes of your tearing. Then your tearing can be corrected using a variety of medication and/or procedures.

Thyroid Eye Disease
Our team is skilled at treating deformities from thyroid eye disease, including upper eyelid retraction, lower eyelid retraction, eye protrusion, and improving the “staring” look.
Tumors: Eyelid and Orbit
We perform surgery for all types of eyelid lesions and skin cancers. We have extensive experience removing lesions, both large and small, and then reconstructing the upper and lower eyelids and the surrounding structures. For skin cancers, we surgically remove the tumor and the margins or edges are evaluated under a microscope by a pathologist standing by at the time of surgery in a frozen section technique. Alternately, we also work closely with Mohs surgeons who can map and remove the tumor in their offices and then we can proceed with eyelid reconstruction afterwards.
