Eyelid Surgery and Dry Eye

Many of my Houston eyelid surgery patients have a history of dry eye due to previous LASIK surgery, poor tear production, or previous surgery. Whether it is upper eyelid surgery or surgery for lower eyelid bags, eyelid surgery needs to be performed conservatively when it comes to patients with dry eye. In addition, your ophthalmologist should be informed that you are considering eyelid surgery if you have a history of dry eye. This way, they and your plastic surgeon can work as team during your postoperative period to assure any worsening of the dry eye is addressed.
