How soon after Lasek surgery should I consider unilateral ptosis surgery? I had severe astigmatism in one eye, I think caused by this congenital unilateral ptosis, which is now corrected. My eyes were dry after lasek, but now getting better 4 months later. Second part of the question is how good will symmetry be? Would it matter much that I took so long to get this corrected? Would Herring's law have more effect because of this? I have attached a photo of my eyes Thanks in advance

Usually 6 months after LASIK
I have to emphysis on making sure to be evaluated for your dry eye as well prior to your ptosis surgery.
Eyelid surgery after LASIK
I recommend you ask your ophthomalogist this question as they would be the most likely to have accurate information. Make sure you see a board certified plastic surgeon for your eyelid surgery/ptosis repair
