Is ptosis repair required on both eyelids?
Thank you for sharing your question and photos. You likely will require correction of both upper eyelids. Comprehensive evaluation and guidance by an experienced, board-certified Oculoplastic Surgeon is the next step for you. Sometimes, one eyelid will be addressed at a time, while other times simultaneous surgery on both lids is required.
This is pretty severe ptosis.
I definitely recommend that you see a fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon. There are several excellent fellowship trained surgeons in your community. When you call determine if they accept your heal insurance. The American Society for Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery maintains a regional directory on their website that can help you find a highly qualified surgeon close to home.
