How Blepharoplasty Can Help with Vision Problems

Many women and men seek eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the appearance of their eyes and look younger.

However, a number of patients turn to blepharoplasty to restore peripheral vision that has been disrupted by sagging lids that bulge over lashes.

If you are suffering from sagging eyelids, continue reading to learn all about the cosmetic and functional advantages of an eyelid lift.

Here’s how blepharoplasty can help with vision problems as well as provide anti-aging effects.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that addresses loose skin, lax muscles, and excess fat to improve the appearance of droopy eyelids, under eye bags, and crepey skin.

The treatment is performed on an outpatient-basis and typically takes 30 minutes to two hours.

Eyelid surgery can be used to treat upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both and may also be combined with a brow lift, depending on the patient’s concerns and goals.

How Blepharoplasty Can Help with Vision Problems

Over time, eyelids stretch and supporting muscles weaken, which can lead to severe sagging. When drooping lids descend to the point that they cover the pupil, it can cause vision impairment – particularly in the upper and outer parts of your field of vision.

Fortunately, in the hands of a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Rostami or Dr. Naz, blepharoplasty can help with vision problems and improve quality of life.

Following treatment, women and men are able to resume activities, including reading, driving, watching TV, or going to the movies, that they avoided due to their inability to see.

What Can Patients Expect After an Eyelid Lift?

Immediately after blepharoplasty, patients may experience blurry vision, which typically resolves on its own in two-to-three days. They may also note bruising, swelling, and sensitivity to light and wind.

Most patients are able to return to work in four-t0-seven days, but full recovery can take up to two-to-four weeks.
