Cosmetic Eye Surgery
Since the eyes carry much of the facial expression, we usually notice a stranger's eyes first upon meeting. Premature aging of the area around the eyes can add years to the face. In severe cases, hanging skin can also produce interference with the vision or eye fatigue, especially if the upper eyelid skin is affected.
Horizon Eye Care is proud to offer a wide range of ophthalmic cosmetic procedures designed to help you "look" as good as you "see". Some of these are:
- Dry Eye
- Tearing Problems
- Thyroid Related Eye Diseases
- Drooping Eyelids
Also known as Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery, Blepharoplasty is designed to cosmetically improve the area around the eyes. The procedure can dramatically alter this area so that the individual appears significantly younger. In a procedure which lasts approximately 30 minutes per lid and which requires only local anesthetic, a portion of the eyelid skin and underlying fatty tissue is surgically removed. This is one of our most common plastic surgeries performed.
Droopy Eyelid Correction (Ptosis Treatment)
Ptosis (droopiness) is a common condition that can affect the upper eyelid of one or both eyes as a result of aging, a congenital defect, muscle deformity or neurological disorder.This condition can occur in patients of all ages, but is most common in older patients and will likely continue to worsen with age.
In addition to drooping of the eyelids, patients with ptosis may also experience:
- Difficulty closing the eye or blinking
- Eye fatigue
- Double vision
Patients may seek treatment for droopy eyelids for cosmetic and/or medical purposes. Severe drooping may obstruct vision as the eyelid gradually droops lower and lower, eventually covering the eye. Other patients are simply bothered by the appearance of their eyelids. Treatment for this condition usually involves eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty.
