XANTHELASMA (Eyelid Problems)

Eyelid problems are common and rarely serious, but see your doctor if you’re worried or your eye is particularly uncomfortable.

Some of the common eyelid problems are:

  • Swollen eyelid, eyelid cyst or stye
  • Itchy, flaky or sticky eyelids
  • Lumps on or around the eyelids
  • Hooded or droopy upper eyelids
  • Lower eyelid that rolls outwards (ectropion)
  • Eyelids that roll inwards (entropion)
  • Yellow plaques on the eyelids
  • Excessive blinking or uncontrollable closure of the eyelids

TREATMENT

Treatment of xanthelasma will be highly dependent on the assessment of your doctor. You may be recommended for medical care or surgical care.
