You seem to be having lagophthalmos on the affected site. You can go ahead with the gold implant surgery. It is a good option for you. It will also help dryness in the eye and protect cornea. You need to see an oculoplastic surgeon for this. All the best.

Expert:  Dr.S Riaz replied 6 years ago.
An oculoplastic surgeon is an ophthalmologist who is further specialized in lid surgeries. Even plastic surgeons do this surgery. You can look up oculoplastic and plastic surgeons in a search engine like google. If you are unable to find one then give me your complete address and I will do it for you. Thanks.
