Eyelid Surgery Helps Vision

Upper eyelid surgery to remove heavy, sagging skin of the upper eyelids, otherwise known as upper blepharoplasty, is not always performed simply to improve appearance. With aging, some people develop looseness to the upper eyelid skin that can cause hooding where the skin rests on the eyelashes. This can fatigue the forhead muscles over the course of the day because they need to work harder to help ease some of the weight on the eyelids. The hanging skin frequently interferes with the field of vision when patients look upward and outward. This can be documented by a visual field test performed by their ophthamologist. It is for these reasons that insurance may cover an upper blepharoplasty which improves the patient's vision and sense of well-being.
