  • What is a lower eyelid retraction repair?

  1. Someone may undergo lower eyelid retraction repair to correct a condition where the lower eyelid is positioned abnormally low or retracted, causing the white part (sclera) of the eye to be excessively exposed. This condition can lead to symptoms such as chronic dryness, irritation, redness, tearing, and discomfort due to inadequate eyelid coverage. By correcting the lower eyelid position through surgical intervention, lower eyelid retraction repair aims to alleviate symptoms, improve eye comfort, restore normal eyelid function, and enhance overall appearance.
