Eyelid paralysis (no function) or eyelid paresis (weakness) after Bell’s palsy or other forms of facial nerve injury is a common problem encountered by many patients. It can be devastating to patients as eyelid paralysis or paresis can cause severe pain, reduce vision
and distorted appearance. This problem should only be addressed by an eyelid surgeon who has experience and expertise in this specialized form of surgery.
Surgically addressing these problems is called facial or eyelid reanimation. This means restoring facial and eyelid function and appearance. With eyelid paralysis or paresis this can be very challenging.
