Eyes stuck open after eyelid surgery
Experiencing dry eyes after a blepharoplasty is normal; however you should be able to close your eyes while you sleep. Soon after the surgery as a combination of swelling and early healing, the eyelids can be slightly open in the first instance as the swelling goes down your eyes will be able to close. I recommend contacting your surgeon to make sure recovery is going well in the first instance.
