Floppy Eyelid Syndrome

Written by editor
June 2, 2017

Floppy Eyelid Syndrome occurs at night when patients' upper lids are too lax and allow the surface of the eye to come into contact with their pillow. This has a tendency to occur in obese males, especially those with sleep apnea. Patients with Floppy Eyelid Syndrome may have red, gritty eyes with mucus discharge along their eyelashes when waking up. Treatment usually involves wearing a sleep mask to limit friction on the eyelid/eye, evaluation for sleep apnea, as well as gel drops to further lubricate their ocular surface. If you or a loved one have been struggling with redness, grittiness, and mucus discharge upon waking, Floppy Eyelid Syndrome may be to blame. We can help! Call (419) 521 3937 to get started today.
