5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

60 Year Old Female

I was having difficulty seeing because my eyelids were down to my eye lashes. After some testing I discovered this could be corrected. In the consultation Dr. Burnstine was very thorough in showing and explaining what he could do to improve this for me. So very happy with the results and would do it again!!
