Eyelid Surgery or  Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyes.

Surgery can be performed on the upper and lower lids, or both. This can help if you are experiencing visual field loss or difficulty seeing in generla due to:

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

Eyelid surgery may also help cosmetically, but may not be covered by insurance if there is no functional vision loss. If there are any questions, please contact Andersen Eye and/or your insurance company for details of coverage.
