Why Consider Surgery to Correct Droopy Eyelids
Droopy eyelids can do more than make you look tired or older than you feel – they can affect your vision. Whether corrective surgery involves an eye lift or a more complex approach, your best bet is to consult with a qualified oculoplastic surgeon.
Where Should You Go for Botox, Fillers, and Eye Lifts?
Oculoplastic surgery covers a range of needs and options--from surgery after a traumatic injury to medical or cosmetic eyelid lifts. Some procedures can help improve your vision; others simply help you look your best.
What Can You Do When Your Child Has Ptosis?
When the upper eyelid droops over the eye, it's called ptosis. Children may be born with the condition and adults may develop it with age. It also could develop as a side effect after certain surgeries, diseases, or tumors.
