An ectropian can affect one eye or both and is where either part, or all of the lower eyelid turns outwards from the eye. It often affects both eyes but can occur in one eye alone.


An entropion is when the eyelid rolls inwards, it usually affects the lower eyelid but can also affect the upper lid. The condition can be present from birth but is more commonly infection or age-related.

Eyelid ptosis affects the muscles in the eyelid that are designed to lift the upper eyelid. It causes drooping of the upper eyelid. Ptosis occurs due to a dysfunction of the muscles or nerve supply that control the raising and lowering of the eyelid.


Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is an operation used to reshape the eyelids and treat droopy eyes. In the UK, over 8,000 people undergo the procedure each year. At Vision Scotland, blepharoplasties are always carried out by experienced oculoplastic consultant surgeons.

Blepharitis is inflammation of the rims of the eyelids, which causes them to become red and swollen. Symptoms can include; burning, soreness or stinging in the eyes, crusty eyelashes or itchy eyelids. It is commonly caused by bacterial infection or can be a complication of a skin condition. Blepharitis will often be treated by your GP but occasionally, referral to an Ophthalmologist is required.
