When is Eyelid Surgery covered by insurance
Lower eyelids are covered when contributing to either watery eyes or dry eyes, either by significant laxity or retraction. Lastly, both upper and lower eyelids are covered for the indication of medical conditions such as thyroid eye disease, facial palsy etc but again, this is for the rehabilitation to restore eyelid functions such as normal eyelid closure (even blink) and symptoms and signs of watery eye, dry eye, corneal exposure etc People with artificial eyes often are covered in order to allow correct fitting of an artifical eye.
