The Lasik eye surgery can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. The surgery is performed for either cosmetic or functional reasons. Sometimes excess upper eyelid tissue obstructs the upper visual field or can weigh down the eyelid and create tired-feeling eyes. Most often, people choose Lasik surgery to improve their look by making the area around their eyes firmer. When this surgery is performed to improve vision, rather than for cosmetic reasons only, it may be covered by assurance. The surgeon then pulls back the flap to expose the underlying corneal tissue, and then the excimer laser ablates the cornea in a unique pre-specified pattern for each patient.
As skin ages, it gradually loses its suppleness. A lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids. Surplus skin on the lower eyelid cause bulges. On the upper eyelids, an additional fold of skin can suspend over the eyelashes and get in the way of seeing. The fat that cushions the eyeball from the skull can also cause bulges in the upper and lower eye. The thin covering that holds the fat in place weakens with age, letting the fat come forward into the lids. Skin redundancy and muscle laxity involving the eyelids can blight vision. Ptosis occurs when the eyelid droops more than is considered normal, potentially impairing vision. The person should follow the doctor's pre-operative instructions carefully and thoroughly review the post-operative instructions in a better way.
