Patients may feel that their vision is improved after eyelid surgery. This is especially true for upper eyelid surgery. Lower eyelid surgery or lower eyelid bags surgery will not affect vision. Removing the excess upper eyelid skin may improve peripheral visual fields which in turn could improve vision. This will occur when looking up and when looking laterally and up. Some surgeons may accept insurance for this eyelid surgery but at Funk Facial Plastic Surgery we do not. Lower eyelid surgery can be performed at the same time as upper eyelid surgery.
