In some cases, defects, deformities, or disfigurement of the eyelids can be severe enough to negatively impact vision. For example, an upper eyelid may droop low enough to block vision. This can adversely affect every-day tasks, like driving.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical operation that can correct this type of eyelid problem. In the example given, Dr. Rahmani could perform a blepharoplasty to remove the excess skin and fat from the drooping upper eyelid, which usually results in improved vision.
Blepharoplasty is often covered by medical insurance. It can sometimes affect the function and lubrication of the eye, so it’s important to consult an Ophthalmologist. Other surgeons can perform Blepharoplasty, but only an Ophthalmologist is trained specifically to treat the eye, and is uniquely qualified to help you decide whether you should consider this surgery.
