Common conditions include skin cancers of the eyelid area, droopy eyelid surgery (ptosis), excessive eyelid skin (dermatochalasis), inward and outward turning eyelids (entropion and ectropion), cosmetic eyelid surgery and thyroid eye disease. Oculoplastics surgeons are also specialists in surgery involving the lacrimal system, which can often present with watery eyes (epiphora).
