Eyelid Disorders

Facial Palsy

Poor Eyelid Closure

Facial palsy frequently results in incomplete eyelid closure, eye irritation, watering and blurred vision. Disfigurement is distressing. If the cause is Bell’s palsy there should be a gradual recovery. If not, and different symptoms present, other sources of the problem must be sought.
