EYELID CONDITIONS


BLEPHARITIS


Blepharitis is a very common inflammatory disorder of the edge of the eyelid where the eyelashes are located. Bacteria, which normally exist on our skin, are drawn to crusts around the base of the eyelashes and produce chemical substances which irritate the eyes resulting in itching, irritation and burning of the eyes.



PTOSIS


The word ptosis means downward displacement of an organ or tissue. Ptosis in ophthalmology usually refers to a drooping upper eyelid (also referred to as a “blepharoptosis”) but it can also refer to a drooping of the eyebrow (brow ptosis) or the midface (midface ptosis).



ECTROPION


A lower eyelid ectropion is an eyelid disorder in which the lower eyelid margin is turned away from its normal position in contact with the eye.



ENTROPION


A lower eyelid entropion is an eyelid disorder in which the lower eyelid margin is turned inwards against the globe causing discomfort from contact between the eyelashes and the surface of the eye.



BLEPHAROSPASM


Blepharospasm is a condition characterised by uncontrollable and sometimes painful muscle contractions around the eye. Symptoms can include excessive blinking and involuntary closure of the eyelids.



EYELID LESIONS


A variety of eyelid lesions can affect the eyelids. These include cysts, inflammatory lesions, and both benign and malignant tumours. A biopsy may be required to establish a diagnosis.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Clinic Closure Notice

It is with great sadness that we have had no option but to temporarily close the Face & Eye Clinic as of Friday 27th March 2020 in order to prevent a wider spread of COVID-19.

The Face & Eye Clinic has always been committed to providing a safe environment for patients and staff, in which high quality care can be delivered. Please rest reassured that we will continue to do so as soon as we are able to reopen our clinic.

What is important to know at the moment:

  • We are calling all patients who are affected to inform them that their appointment has been cancelled – telephone consultations may be offered where appropriate.
  • During the closure our mailbox enquiries@faceandeye.co.uk will be continually monitored. We are remaining active to support you with anything you may need and will be happy to answer any queries you have.
  • You can also find information on our website http://www.faceandeye.co.uk/
  • If you are a Face & Eye post-op patient with an urgent concern, please call the mobile number for your consultant which you were provided with when discharged. Please be aware that, during this period of closure, the consultants may not be able to respond immediately, as they may be undertaking vital NHS work. If you do not receive a response, please email enquiries@faceandeye.co.uk

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. We will keep you updated on any changes and look forward to seeing you back at the clinic very soon.

Please stay at home, stay positive and look after each other.
