Droopy eye lids is a serious condition that can have serious consequences for a person’s life. If you or a loved one has droopy eye lids, we here at Kunesh Eye Center in Dayton, OH, are ready to help.

You Should Consult Your Eye Doctor About Droopy Eye Lids

It is a good idea to consult an eye doctor if you have droopy eye lids. There are multiple reasons why you might have droopy eye lids. These reasons may range from you having droopy eye lids due to normal aging, due to a disease, or due to some type of eye injury that you suffered.

A stroke, diabetes, and eyelid swelling are also potential causes of droopy eye lids. It is also possible that you might have a tumor near your eye or behind it and that is causing your eye lids to droop. Because of this, you should consult our ophthalmologist if you have droopy eye lids that don’t seem to be caused by normal aging.

Vision Problems Due to Droopy Eye Lids

Issues with your vision are a common symptom of droopy eye lids. The vision problem might be relatively minor at first. At the beginning, you might feel that only the upper field of your vision is being obstructed. However, when it gets to the point that the drooping eyelid covers your eye’s pupil, then your drooping eyelid might block your vision completely. You might also experience achiness and tiredness near your eyes, as well. Since a drooping eye lid can obstruct your vision, you should visit an ophthalmologist from our practice right away if you have a droopy eye lid.

Is Eye Surgery a Part of Droopy Eyelid Treatment?

Your treatment depends on the cause of the drooping eyelid. If a disease is causing it, the disease will be treated. If natural aging is causing your drooping eyelids, you do not require treatment. However, eye surgery is sometimes part of the treatment for drooping eye lids. This eye surgery is known as eyelid lift surgery, and it is used to repair drooping or sagging upper eyelids.

Dr. John Kunesh is an oculoplastic physician and can help you.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a form of eye surgery that removes excess skin from your eyelid. People who have been diagnosed with ptosis, drooping of the eyelids, benefit from having their eyelids trimmed for medical purposes, including better functioning of the eye.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery if you notice that your eyelids are puffy or uncomfortable. They might be interfering with your ability to see properly, or maybe the eyelashes frequently block your peripheral vision. If you think you are a good candidate for surgery, speak with an ophthalmologist to see if you are a good candidate.

What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery offers several benefits. Eyelid surgery can improve your vision by removing excess skin from your upper and lower eyelids. Surgery gives you back your peripheral vision and decreases the appearance of bags under your eyes. Surgery can also make your eyes look younger and bigger.

Does Eyelid Surgery Have Risks?

There are some risks associated with eye surgery. Some people experience bleeding or infection at the site of surgery, while others experience blurry vision for a short period of time. Some people experience decreased function of the eyelids, and others feel temporary irritation as the eyes heal.

What Happens during the First Surgery Appointment?

Before you get eyelid surgery, you will come in for a consultation. Blepharoplasty requires a close examination of your eyes and eyelids. You will come back for a second appointment, if surgery is scheduled, for photos and testing so we can obtain authorization from your insurance company.

Your next appointment will be at our outpatient surgical center. You will be given medication that helps you relax, and the doctor will make a cut near the top of your eyelid. Excess skin will be removed, and the doctor will stitch up your eyelid.
