Too much upper lid skin removed
- I am sorry about this unfortunate problem,
- I am glad you are seeing a specialist,
- Wait at least 6 months before skin grafts,
- They are not done for cosmetic purposes but to allow the eye to close so that it is properly protected.
- The eye drops and ointment are important. Keep them up.
