• Is eyelid surgery OK after having retinal surgery?


    Question:

    If I had a retinal tear corrected three years ago with laser and had it checked recently, is it OK to have lower lid surgery on my eyes to eliminate bags and puffiness?


    Answer:

    Yes. It is ok to have a lower blepharoplasty, even if you have undergone laser retinal surgery. You may wish to get the blessing of your retinal surgeon as well in case there are special circumstances of which you are not aware.
