Eyelid Surgery for Improved Vision

To help individuals with excessively drooping eyelids, we employ techniques similar to those used in traditional upper eyelid surgery, but with a foremost focus on improving the patient's vision. Skin and fat tissue that hangs below the upper line of the patient's eye, thus blocking the sight line forwards, upwards, or to the side, is removed and the remaining skin is re-draped so that the eyelid appears more defined. To ensure that any resultant scarring is inconspicuous and hidden from view, the incisions for this procedure are typically made in the upper crease of the eyelid. As with traditional eyelid surgery, the procedure can be performed under local anesthetic with the aid of a sedative in most cases.

Risks and Benefits

The benefits of eyelid surgery are plainly evident: improved vision, a healthier, more youthful appearance, and greater self-confidence are just some of the benefits that you can expect. If sagging eyelids inhibit your vision and make you look older than you actually are, eyelid surgery can provide the solution you are seeking for a better, more comfortable, more rewarding life.

If you are considering eyelid surgery for improved vision, you should first be aware of the risks. We can discuss the risks in more detail during your personal consultation, but risks can include infection, scarring, bruising, swelling, bleeding, and adverse reaction to anesthesia.
