Pterygium refers to a scar tissue that grows from the corner of the eye and extends over the cornea and towards the pupil. It can cause serious vision concerns if it grows over the pupil. They need to be dealt in timely manner to avoid permanent decrease in vision.
Eyelid malposition is abnormal positioning of the eyelids due to various causes. It is usually caused by relaxation of tissues around the eye mostly due to ageing, but can also occur because of paralysis of the facial nerve (Bell’s palsy), trauma, scarring or surgery.

Strabismus, also known as squint, can manifest itself in a number of different ways and presents in both adults and children. As well as affecting vision, people with strabismus can feel self-conscious about how it impacts on their appearance.
