Eye Problems After A Blepharoplasty

I am sorry that you are having this experience.  From what you are describing, it sounds like you had upper and lower blepharoplasty and canthal surgery to tighten the lower lid.  You problems may be due to:


1)  Dry eye

2)  Incomplete closure of the eye

3)  Lower lid is not properly place and is no longer touching the eyeball in the correct fashion

4)  Others


If you are concerned that you believe that there may be another problem other than dry eye, I would suggest you see a specialist who has experience with patients having these issues after surgery.  It is important that you keep the eye moist to avoid long term problems such as corneal abrasions.


I hope this helps!
