“Droopy eyelids” can be addressed with one or both of the following surgical procedures:
Blepharoplasty is a highly effective surgery in restoring normal vision by removing the excess eyelid skin and fat that can cause a patient to feel “heaviness” and fatigue of their overall visual experience. A blepharoplasty can dramatically improve one’s peripheral vision and reverse the effect of these changes associated with aging.
Ptosis repair is the tightening (strengthening) of the muscles that raise the upper eyelid. Weakening of these muscles causes the eyelid to rest at a lower position interfering with a patient’s normal field of vision as well as making a patient look and feel tired.
