Eyelid Surgery Often Insured By Emilio Justo on June 11, 2014

We rely on our eyesight in our day to day life, so when our vision begins to blur, it's important for us to get eyeglasses or contacts. When cataracts begin to interfere with our vision, we undergo treatment and surgery.

But what do you do when your vision is corrected, but still impaired - by droopy eyelids?

It's more common than you may think to experience upper and lower eyelids that begin to sag and obstruct your field of vision. It may happen as we age - or, it can happen at young ages, too. Because of its impact to your vision, it is important to look at the options.

The good news is a simple procedure called Blepharoplasty can eliminate the extra skin, and improve your sight. Even better, many of the patients in my practice have been approved for insurance coverage of this surgery, because for them it has been deemed medically necessary.

It's a procedure that many don't realize some insurance plans may cover, when we demonstrate that the surgery is necessary to improve your field of vision.

Trading in a tired and older appearance, for brighter eyes and a more youthful look is of course a benefit everyone who has had the surgery enjoys. But regaining that original field of vision will put pep back into your step and improve your outlook on life.

The process is simple: Just make an appointment for a consultation at Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center. My staff does all the work with the insurance companies.

If you do choose surgery, most often the surgery is performed with local anesthesia. Healing is quick.

What you will have is your vision - the full field of vision.

I encourage you to learn more about this surgery, if it could benefit you. And to spread the word: We can change many lives in a big way by educating our community of friends and family about a surgery their insurance may cover, and which could dramatically change their lives.

Learn more.
