The eyelids are best known for their protective role against light and particles. However, they also allow tears to spread across the surface of the eye, renew the tear film and wash out debris. As with any mobile part of the body, the eyelids move thanks to a muscle controlled by a nerve. An eyelid will drop if the levator muscle is weak or if a skin fold results from an excess of skin, muscle or fatty tissue. Also, the edge of the eyelids where eyelashes grow out of can turn inward or outward and thus compromise eye health.
Eyelid surgery (also called “blepharoplasty”) is most commonly used to treat ptosis (dropping eyelid), entropion (inward eyelid) and ectropion (outward eyelid).
Injections of Botox (botulinum toxin type A) can be used to treat patients suffering from abnormal and unpleasant muscular contractions.
Dr. Boileau’s personal and professional achievements provide a patent illustration of the values that guide him, namely, hard work, courage and determination.
