    Facial Palsy


    Facial palsy may be temporary as in Bell’s palsy or be permanent due to damage of the facial nerve as in a stroke or certain tumours or surgical procedures. As far as the eyes are concerned this results in an inability to adequately close the eye, drooping of the lower eyelid, brow ptosis and watering of the affected eye.

    Many procedures are possible to improve the function and appearance of the eye from simple tightening procedures to elevation of the brow and insertion of gold or platinum weights in the upper eyelid to assist in closure.
