Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure designed to remove sagging skin and fat on and around the eyelids. It is known for providing a dramatic improvement in appearance that other people often cannot pinpoint. Other than making you look younger, blepharoplasty may have an added side benefit: vision improvement.
Sagging skin and fat can cause the eyelids to droop, potentially obstructing your vision. Eyelid surgery can remove and lift these obstructions using gentle surgical techniques. In some cases, a brow lift alone, or eyelid surgery combined with a brow lift may better address your vision issues.
To experience this benefit, it is important to know if your vision problems stem solely from eyelid issues. A comprehensive eye exam can help determine if you have other underlying problems with your vision better solved by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. If determined that eyelid surgery can help address your vision, a consultation with Dr. Santos can decide if you are a candidate for the surgery.
