As we age, our upper eyelids begin to sag down and crowd the eyes, causing them to lose their youthful “open” appearance, giving the face a “tired” or “sad” look, but also can crowd the vision from above and to the outside of our peripheral vision. If this occurs, a visual field test may help determine whether your insurance company will cover the functional blepharoplasty.
After removal of the upper eyelid saggy skin and muscle, the field of vision is dramatically improved. Sometimes the brows also contribute to the crowding of the eyes, and in some cases the brows must be elevated to achieve the improvement in the visual fields.
Each patient is analyzed carefully and presents a different anatomic picture and requires a different set of tools for an optimal, natural periorbital rejuvenation. You can be sure your treatment will be individualized to your particular needs.
