Dr Kwitko

Reconstructive surgery can correct a number of problems with the eyelids, such as eyelid cancers, ectropion (outward turning of the eyelids), or entropion (inward turning of the eyelids), and ptosis (drooping of the upper lid). Eyelid reconstruction surgery requires the specialized skill of an experienced oculoplastic surgeon whose practice is devoted to procedures involving the delicate eye area. If you are considering reconstructive eyelid surgery, it is important that you choose a surgeon you can trust with your eyes.

Dr. Geoffrey M. Kwitko, M.D. F.A.C.S. is one of Clearwater, Florida’s most celebrated oculoplastic surgeons, with over 27 years of experience performing a wide range of reconstructive eye surgeries. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of South Florida and the Editor-in-Chief of the Electronic Journal of the Neuro-Ophthalmic Surgical Society. His practice is committed to utilizing the latest research and technology to achieve optimal results for each patient.

Removal Of Eyelid Cancers

When cancers develop on the eyelids, they often require biopsy and/or removal. Removing cancers from the eyelids is not only medically necessary in many cases, but can help restore the appearance of the eyelids. Dr. Kwitko has extensive experience removing tumors from the eye area, and can ensure your comfort during and after the procedure.

Ectropion and Entropion

Ectropion occurs when the eyelids loosen or turn outward, causing the inner surface of the eyelid to be exposed. Common symptoms include excessive eye watering, dryness, and irritation. In addition to causing discomfort, ectropion can be aesthetically unpleasing. Ectropion can be caused by a number of different factors, including weakening of the eyelid muscles that often occurs as we age.

Entropion involves an inward turning of the eyelids, causing the eye lashes and skin to rub against the surface of the eye. Entropion is most common on the lower eyelid, and can cause serious discomfort and irritation to the eyes. Patients with entropion often experience the sensation of having something in their eye, sensitivity to light and wind, mucous discharge, and impaired vision. Left untreated, it can cause permanent damage to the eye

Most reconstructive eyelid procedures are done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. If you live in the Clearwater, FL area and are concerned that you may have entropion or ectropion, Dr. Kwitko can help.
