Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can aid in numerous areas of the eyes. It can eliminate puffy, swollen under eyes, smooth crow’s feet, remove sagging skin, and ultimately revitalize the eyes. However, other benefits of eyelid surgery may surprise you. But does eyelid surgery improve vision? 

Eyelid surgery can improve vision, but it depends on the type of eyelid surgery you undergo. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin, which means we lose tightness in the skin. The upper eyelids are the culprit for skin hanging around the eyes and blocking peripheral vision. 

Upper blepharoplasty targets the skin around the upper lids, which can droop down with age and interfere with vision. By eliminating the sagging skin and tightening what remains, upper blepharoplasty can repair impaired vision and brighten the eyes. However, lower blepharoplasty only targets the lower lids, which usually does not interfere with vision. It reduces puffy, tired-looking eyes and creates a youthful appearance.
