Cosmetic surgery is desired and oftentimes necessary for those suffering from eye issues. There are several physical effects associated with vision loss and disease. For example, a natural aging process in older adults can be excess eyelid skin. Without warning, this can lead to pain in the brow region, as well as a reduction in peripheral vision.
Physical Conditions and Treatments
Drooping Eyelids (also known as Ptosis) is common among older adults. In many instances, this condition deters normal vision. One of the most common treatments to this issue is blepharoplasty. The procedure consists of the removal of excess skin, as well as the tightening of muscles to improve vision and physical appearance.
Inflamed Eyelids are present in a condition known as Blepharitis. This condition leaves eyes red, burning, and stinging, as well as, excessive and frequent eye irritation. Inflammation can also cause blurred vision as well as damage to corneas. Cosmetic surgery is available to both improve the physical symptoms as well as correct any potential vision damage.
Cosmetic surgeries provide desirable solutions to both physical appearance and vision loss and damage. Although there are few risks associated with these cosmetic surgeries, it is important the patient discuss any procedure with their ophthalmologist.
