Conditions of the eyelid, tear drain system, and orbit—the tissue and bone surrounding the eye—can be painful, debilitating, and vision-impairing. Yale ophthalmologists provide first-class care for patients with these issues collectively known as oculoplastic and orbital conditions.
We have the expertise and experience to treat a wide range of eyelid problems, including drooping eye, eyelids turned in and out, and misdirected eyelashes. We also see patients with eyelid growths and inflammations such as infections, styes, benign growths, and minor skin cancers. In addition, our physicians diagnose and treat conditions and diseases of the tear duct and drain systems, as well as trauma, tumors, and loss of an eye.
