Lid SurgeriesDifferent types of growths can develop on the eyelids. These growths are often benign, but may be irritating, grow large enough to affect vision or lid function, or sometimes develop into something more serious, such as skin cancer. It is important to have an ophthalmologist examine any lid lesion, especially if it is growing or changing in any way, and determine whether observation, biopsy, or excision is appropriate.
If a surgical intervention is necessary, it can often be done as a minor procedure under local anesthesia in the office. The physicians at Southern Shores Eye Center are experienced in the evaluation and treatment of many types of lid lesions.
