    • Skin cancers or other growths in or around your eyes
    • Eye problems caused by thyroid disease
    • Weakness around your eyes or eyelids caused by Bell’s palsy
    • Eyelids that turn inward (entropion) or outward (ectropion)
    • Droopy upper eyelids (ptosis)
    • Excess skin and aging changes around the eyes

    Oculoplasty can also be used to treat injuries to your eye or eye area as well as eye-related birth defects.
