Eyelid paralysis or paresis leads to loss of function (strength and tone) of the eyelid muscle which closes the eye – the orbicularis oculi muscle.  This can cause to disfigurement, reduced vision and depression. Eyelid paralysis can be caused by a number of problems such as Bells Palsy, trauma, surgery or tumors.  It is critical to make the appropriate diagnosis and develop the best treatment plan to address the weakened (paretic eyelids)
