Hi, Blepharoplasty doesn't usually affect vision. One may notice blurriness of vision for the first few days until the eye surface and tear film have settled down. In case of any further concerns do contact us at www.advancedeyehospital.com

You can generally see "something" right after you get up from the bed. You are aatcully quite comfortable for about 10 minutes after the procedure. Then it starts becoming uncomfortable with a foreign body sensation, grittiness, lots of watering, and an inability to keep the eye open. This starts lessening after 2-3 hours, and this discomfort goes away completely in 24 hours. All this while, your vision also starts improving (there is blur which starts clearly slowly). In about 12 hours, one should have pretty clear vision, and you should be able to begin driving and so on. In 24 hours, you should have as good, or only slightly inferior vision than what you had before LASIK with your spectacles. Was this answer helpful?

Yes! Pre-op, My distance vision was perfectly clear. Post-op it's slightly blurry. However, I'm thrilled with the upper bleph and look forward to buying cool nerd glasses for my vision.

Hi jeanah -- Eyelid surgery improves vision for some people, since it lifts the eyelid out of the field of vision. But I assume you mean a negative change (such as blurry vision). Could you be more specific about what's happening to you?
