How Eyelid Surgery Affects Eyesight

Have you been thinking about having blepharoplasty done? Blepharoplasty is the medical name for eyelid surgery and is usually performed either on the upper or lower eyelids to correct problems such as dropping skin, excess skin, bags under the eyes and wrinkles. There are certain circumstances in which eyelid surgery can improve eyesight, and that is one major reason many people seek out eyelid surgery in Denver.

At the Fante Eye & Face Centre, you can have blepharoplasty performed by a highly trained plastic surgeon at a reasonable price. If you are considering eyelid surgery, you may be wondering how it will affect your eyesight, and if you have trouble seeing, you may be hoping eyelid surgery in Denver can improve your eyesight. Let’s take a look at how this surgery does affect eyesight.

Vision and Eyelid Surgery

Droopy and excess skin around the eyes can impair vision, so eyelid surgery that removes that excess skin and makes the eyes less droopy should result in better vision, but not everyone is a candidate for eyelid surgery because of various problems, like your vision is not bad due to eyelid problems. It is possible for loose skin in the upper eyelid to block your vision, but this doesn’t occur with the lower eyelid.  It is also possible that your upper eyelid muscle is not functioning properly leading to drooping of your upper eyelid, which would also adversely affect your vision. There are just so many variables to consider when it comes to how and why vision is impaired.

As with any cosmetic surgery, each patient’s reaction and results vary, so it’s best to discuss your questions about how your vision will be affected with Dr. Robert Fante, your cosmetic surgeon at the Fante Eye & Face Centre.

What to Expect

After an initial consultation, complete medical history and thorough physical exam, Dr. Fante and his highly trained team of medical professionals at the Eye & Face Centre will be able to assess whether or not you’d be a good candidate for eyelid surgery in Denver and whether or not the surgery would improve your vision.

If you have struggled with eye problems and feel that your vision is affected by the ways your eyes are shaped or how excessive the skin is around your eyes, you may want to consider a consultation with Dr. Fante at the Fante Eye & Face Centre. If you contact us, we will schedule your initial consultation, and in no time at all, Dr. Fante and his team will be able to give you answers to all of your questions.
