H03.8: Involvement of eyelid in other diseases classified elsewhere

Your eyelid is changed.

The eyelids along with the lashes are located above and under the eye. They protect the eye from injuries and drying out. Fat, muscles, and several glands are included in the eyelid, among other things. The glands produce some partly fatty elements for the layer of fluid on the eye.
