This chapter begins by looking at the eyelid and nasolacrimal system anatomy, before covering the key areas of clinical knowledge, namely lash abnormality, entropion, ectropion, ptosis, benign lid lesions, premalignant and malignant lid lesions, epiphora, acquired nasolacrimal system abnormalities, and congenital abnormalities. Clinical and practical skills are then covered, including ptosis examination, evaluation of the patient with acquired epiphora, incision and curettage of chalazion, syringing and probing, and botulinum-toxin injections. The chapter concludes with three case-based discussions, on epiphora, ptosis, and lid lump.
