Lower lid falling. due to accident.

Q:

10 yrs, ago I had an accident. A garden hose dropped from my hand, fell on bark mulch, spun quickly and shot both water an mulch into my eyes full force. The next day when applying makeup I noticed that both lids were drooping badly which got worse everyday. My eye doctor said it was aging. I have had many lid surgeries They are drooping again. Could this be a muscle problem? My eyes do not hold tears and are always red and sore.

A:

 

 So sorry to here about your accident and unsuccessful surgery’s. The lower eyelid, ectropin, ectropin, conjunctivitis, etc. can be difficult areas for correction. Consider a member of the ASAPS that specializes in Occulo-Plastic Surgery in your area. They certainly should be able to assist you. Best,
