I had eylid surgery 6 years ago and was recently diagnosed with Lagophthalmos which is a condition of the eylids not completely closing. This is a very serious condition and can lead to loss of vision. Unless you have loss of vision due to overhanging lids don't do it.

Cut eyelids too much.

I'm really sorry for what you've been though. Is Lagophthalmos caused by removing too much eyelid skin?

Yes, I also had my lower eyes done and that was a tortue of recovery. But I believe the problem comes from the eyelids being to short and not closing all the way. I just ordered a dry eye kit to protect my eyes while sleeping and special glasses called moisture chambers. I am beside myself and can use a few prayers. I will never do another cosmetic procedure and grow old gracefully. My husband loves me either way. I did it for myself to feel better since I sing and like to perform.
