Functional Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
If the hooding of your eyelids is very severe, your peripheral vision may become compromised. You may start using your forehead and brow muscles in an attempt to lift the eyelids out of the way to see better. Symptoms are usually worse when tired and at the end of the day. In this case, medical insurance can be used to cover the surgery as it is not for cosmetic improvement but for an actual improvement in the peripheral vision (although an added benefit is an improvement in the periocular appearance).
