Droopy Eyelids?

What can I do with my droopy eyelids?

Dermatochalasis is most commonly found in patients over 50 years of age, and involves excess skin of the upper eyelids.

What are the symptoms of dermatochalasis?

Symptoms can vary depending on the severity of the condition. The most common symptoms include brow ache, eye fatigue and reduced peripheral vision. Many patients will notice their eyelid skin resting on their eyelashes, and may see their eyelid or lashes interfering with their upper visual field. Many patients also report their eyes get tired later in the day, and they struggle with reading and other tasks due to fatigue. Many of these patients will also have horizontal wrinkles across their forehead from constantly lifting their brow to help hold their eyes open wider.
