Ophthalmoplegia or “eye muscle paralysis” is a serious condition. This condition can affect any of the six muscles that help us keep our eyes in place. These muscles are also vital for moving our eyes. So, patients who suffer from external or internal Ophthalmoplegia often require immediate treatment. Do you have this condition? Some common symptoms include – inability to open eyes completely, visibility issues, arched eyebrows, and deepening of the eye sockets. If your eye muscles are weak, your eyes will also look inconsistent and unequal in size. The vision-related problems that follow can crush the patient’s confidence in public settings.
How to Cure this Condition?
The best way to fix Ophthalmoplegia is through surgery. Doctors perform incisions in the eye muscle layers. They operate deep into these layers to adjust the eyelid muscles. These surgeries are typically performed alongside double eyelid surgeries. That’s because the first step of double eyelid surgery is opening the wounds in the upper eyelid. The surgeons correct the weaknesses in the eye muscles. The strong and firm eyelid muscles after the surgery don’t look sleepy or puffy. They help create big, bright eyes. Double eyelid surgeries also correct eye sizes. Patients don’t have unequal openings in their eyes. Their eyes look fresh, young, and perfectly sized.
Are these Surgeries Safe?
Eyelids are multilayered. That’s why weakening of the eyelid muscles is a serious condition. If you have Ophthalmoplegia [กล้ามเนื้อตาอ่อนแรง, which is the term in Thai], you deserve high-quality care. Experienced doctors can correct all types of eye muscle weaknesses via surgeries. Not treating this condition could lead to abnormal or reduced vision. Timely treatment helps patients get big, bright, natural-looking eyes. As patients can open their eyes wider to see more clearly, their vision also improves. Double eyelid surgery is the best way to correct eye muscle weakness.
