Eyelid Surgery and Blepharoplasty

Aging Eyelids Symptoms Include:

  • Excess skin of the upper and lower lids
  • Limitation of superior or side vision
  • Heaviness of the eyelids
  • Tired appearance
  • Puffiness of the lids or bags

As we age, excess skin and fat form around the eyes in the eyelids.  These changes may make the eyelids appear to be drooping, limit vision, and fatigue the eyelid muscles and eyes.  Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is a commonly performed outpatient procedure done by Dr. Foley to reverse the aging eyelid symptoms. 

During a consultation in the Foley Eye Clinic, Dr. Foley will discuss in detail your procedure and options for treatment.  If eyelid surgery is being done to improve your field of vision, the procedure may be covered by your medical insurance.  Eyelid surgery may help restore a more alert, youthful appearance and may enhance your vision.
