• Does Insurance Pay for Eyelid Surgery?


    Question:

    Will insurance pay for eyelid surgery if it is affecting your vision?


    Answer:

    Insurance companies have strict guidelines for coverage of upper lid blepharoplasty. The eyelid skin must be resting on or in front of the patient’s eyelids causing a significant restriction of their peripheral visual field (side vision). This must be documented by photos and visual fields. Additionally, a statement by the patient as to how the droopy upper eyelids are interfering with their activities of daily living is recommended.
