Eyelid malpositions are abnormal positions of the eyelid, leading to inturning or out turning of the eyelid. This can be a birth defect, or secondary to injury or aging. Eyelid malpositions are common, and often lead to watering, light sensitivity, and even a cosmetic blemish. Eyelid malpositions can be corrected with eyelid plastic surgery, and are covered by insurance.
